Look in your logs at the time of named startup to see if your root-server priming failed at that time.

Subject: forward first and fallback not working

bind 9.10.3_p4 with this global option:

forward first;

forwarders {;

If i dig from localhost or any client and answers all is ok but if is unreachable or it doesn't respond, bind doesn't fallback on himslef asking to root server etc .

This is not expected.
Anyone with this behavior ?
