We are running a bind 9.2.4 on a Solaris 10 box for internal only use.
Here is the senario.

When I have rescursion off and I have the following statement

zone "developmentrim.com" {
type forward;
forwarders {; };

and I perform a lookup for developmentrim.com I do not get a response

however I can perform the same lookup against the with a
positive response.
I then turn recursion on and it work fine.

Is there a way to have recusion off and a forward zone working?
