Bind forwarding...

To the IP address of the DNS server? As in, recursive queries sent to the server asking for this name will be forwarded on to... the same DNS server? That would only work if you had views enabled.

However, if what you really want is that such queries are answered with an A record pointing to the name server (or some other host), rather than getting the real answer from Apple's name servers, what you want is an authoritative zone, not forwarding.

zone "" {
	type master;
	file "short-circuit-queries.db";
