when should you use forwarding records/zones or stub records/zones? and how does using them effect client lookups? or, effect the
name server doing the forwarding?

for example, say you have a two groups who both have the same parent... say:

but group1  @ owns all the "clients" and even group2 is a client, but group2 has its own zone.
so, group2 wants a forwarder on group1 name server, so the client lookups never have to goto

so the top question of when do you use these kinds of records and zones, and in the example is it good to forward? or not
