Thinking out loud (bad on Fridays), the internal dns can't resolve
anything apart from its own domain so I think the config should be:
remove the ns:
and let the internal server forward when it gets a request from outside:
dns forwarder =
It then doesn't matter what the 'in-between server' does with it.
