redirecting root hints to fake internal root server

My environment is firewalled from the real world. For queries on zones to which I'm not master, I want to recurse to a corporate server. nslookup some.internal.hostname.com internal.corporate.server works fine. Setting "." to use this internal server in the root.hints file does not. In fact I do not even see my system trying to recurse. (I'm looking at network traffic with a sniffer.)
. 600 IN NS internal.corporate.server.
internal.corporate.server. 600 IN A 192.168.1.1
Alternatively I've setup a forwarding zone in named.conf to query 192.168.1.1 for 'internal.hostname.com'. When monitoring the network for udp data over port 53, I'm not even seeing the query being forwarded. Why?
