I would like to know the official answer on the forwarding timeout of BIND 8

We are using bind 8.2.4. And we have the following setting:

type forward;
forwarders {;; };

We want to know if is down, how long will it take to give up and try

Please kindly give me some advice.

Thank you very much

Eric Cheung
