BIND Forwarding rules

I've got a BIND server set up for cache-only on my gateway here to serve my client machines in my dorm room. There are several DNS servers scattered about the campus here, and I'd like to use those. How do I set up my config so that the BIND server goes to these servers first before going out to a main root server? Thanks!

In the options file add the forwaders entry

forwaders { server1;server2;server3; };
