DNSSEC and forward zones

Hi Phil,

Thanks, however I can't control the domain in question unfortunately. It is what it is. We have to work with it. I totally understand why this doesn't work and actually agree with the design, however I just don't have a workaround or way to force forwarders for this domain with dnssec validation enabled on the resolver.

Don't do this. Use a domain you own, and can put a valid (insecure) 
delegation into.

It might be possible with "type static-stub" in bind 9.8, but I don't 
think so; I think it'll have the same effect.
