Forward zone inside a view

Tony, as you said forwarding requires recursion but when I define:

zone "linux. <>org" {
        recursion yes;
        type forward;
        forward only;
        forwarders {

and after that I restart bind9 service, it fails:

unknown option 'recursion'

So how can I define "recursion yes" just for the zone "" ???

Sorry for my newquestion, I'd appreciate your help.
