I thought that at first you had missed the problem but perhaps not. The
server should act as a forwarder but I don't think it is at the minute. Its
forwarders is blank yet it does resolve non-local addresses - probably
means it goes running off to the root servers or other servers it has cached.
I think I need to beat on the server's configuration a little.
