on my slave server when I use nslookup it reference itself first - and
never finds anything...

whereas if I type
server 10.10.10.10 <--- primary dns

and then lookup a URL - bingo

I have forwarders in my named.conf - primary dns, isp dns1
I have local IP, primary IP, ISP dns1, ISP dns2 in my resolv.conf
