So if i did read right . .. 

In my case.. 
I have 2 DC ( with bind9 dns DLZ ) and i have 2 proxy servers with DNS (bind9) slaves for the DC's. 

I should point my /etc/resolv.conf of the DC's also to the slave dns servers? 
and in case of just 2 dc's without slave dns servers, 
point the DC1 to DC2 dns and DC2 to DC1 dns ? 
If thats the case i have to change my scripts ;-)
