It's not about making forwarding the rule. But there are cases (like here when I have to delegate through a firewall and have only a point-to-point connection between the two DNS-servers which is allowed by the firewall) when you need a forwarding.

And for these cases I think it would be worth to consider, if it would be possible that the named writes a warning-logmessage when it is reading its configuration, that there is a forwarding zone which is never to be used (because of the missing NS-record).

Psssst! Schon vom neuen GMX MultiMessenger gehört?
