Disable DNS forwarding

Hi all,

I have a bind9 server. I want to configure my server for only resolve zone available by the config. If a address like an internet URL is asked to the server, bind must not try to forward the request to other an server. it must directly says : unknow.

config like

forwarders: {};

I'm not sure that I can put no forwarders IP.

comment out the forwarders parameter.

your server will only look at zone that you had configured.
