While true, I don't think it will help this particular issue. As I
understand it, BIND knows, by knowledge of being a root server, that
local. can't possibly exist, and so that knowledge overrides the
configuration of the forwarder.
I ran into similar setting up a fake/virtual TLD for wrbldnsd, which I
was able to resolve by moving it downstream to dnsbl.hireahit.net.
instead of just dnsbl. Nearly. Until I hit one broken application that
wouldn't work with this configuration.
Switching BIND to use hints instead of acting as a root seems to work
around this (broken) local configuration.
