Thanks for the answer homey. I'm sure this would work, but what I'm trying to do is force the use of the local DNS server and let it forward to the ISPs servers - my thinking is, the local DNS cache will build up and it will be slightly faster resolving DNS for LAN machines.
I've played around with a few things...
If local DNS can resolve, it responds in 2ms
. If local DNS can't
resolve, it goes to root and takes 600ms
(which is not what I want).
I would like it to go to ISP servers for a 30ms
response time instead, hence the 2 forwarders specified in named.conf. However, it isn't doing this and this is the problem.
So I guess my 2 questions are:
a) What should
the behaviour be?
b) How do I put it right?
Many thanks again,
