Another interesting thing I noted is that dns recursion also doesn't
appear to be working for this lookup.


$ dig @ www.google.com +norecurse
\ returns no results
$ dig @ www.google.com
\ correctly returns a result (seemingly showing that the dns forwarder
configured in smb.conf is working)


$ dig @ www.domain.com
\ returns no results and displays the warning ";; WARNING: recursion
requested but not available"
