BIND help


I have set up a couple of BIND servers with good success. However, I have one that is puzzling me. Here is the setup.

domain: dummy.lab (note, not a traditional .com, .net, .org)
DNS box: 192.168.0.250
Client: 192.168.0.200

All queries launched from the DNS box to the local "dummy.lab" hosts works fine. The Client box can query any local "dummy.lab" hosts fine. However, the Client box can not query non-local hosts, i.e. internet sites. It times out and a TCPDUMP from the DNS box returns a ServFail message as follows:

14:30:04.017508 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025:
19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017568 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017628 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)
14:30:04.017689 IP ns1.dummy.lab.domain > 192.168.0.200.1025: 19448 ServFail 0/0/0 (32)

My resolv.conf file has the following:
search dummy.lab
nameserver 192.168.0.250
nameserver 1.2.3.4
nameserver 5.6.7.8

(Ok, 1.2.3.4 and 5.6.7.8 are not the real IPs, but you get the point. They are public Internet resolvers)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I have my isp dns servers in a fowarders section of my server named.conf and that seems to work nicely here.
Code:
forwarders {
1.2.3.4;
5.6.7.8;
8.7.6.5;
};
