Hello all, I was trying to follow the thread on the NXDOMAIN and got lost. :) I have a question about using forwarders. If the DNS that is using forwarders receives a query for a zone it's not authoritative for even if it's in the same network, does it go to the forwarders for zone information? I'm trying to get my head around what was discussed in the NXDOMAIN thread. What makes a DNS authoritative for a zone?
