there is no reason why an authoritative nameserver would forward a
request to his own domain no matter if it's samba, named or somethign else

any authoritative nameserver is supposed to know *every* record within
his own zones and you can't have half of them somewhere lese except
subdomain delegation but *not* for simple hosts like "xmpp.domain.tld"
