Forward zones

A forward zone is a particular type of zone which is useful to configure a per-domain forwarding policy. All queries for the domain given by the zone name will be forwarder to the servers specified in the forwarders statement, instead of being forwarded to the default forwarders (if any).

A forward zone can be defined as follow:

zone "my.domain.tld" {
	type forward;
	forward only;
	forwarders {
		1.2.3.4;
	};
};
