Bind not forwarding all requests

I am currently running two bind9 server on Debian Squeeze.

Server 1 is internal dns server and serve some local zone. This server
should forward all unknown requests to our  public DNS server. So I
configured this server as follow :

  forward only;
        forwarders {

The second server is allowed to do DNS request on the internet, so there is
no forwarder configured.

The issue is that I see on my firewall that server1 is trying to do DNS
requests on DNS ROOT server.

Any idea why I do have this issue ? wrong configuration ?
