Yet another question about zone forwarding

Hi guys!

thanks for reading. I have a question related to create a new forward zone. I am not pretty sure if I have to use a forward zone
or create a new IN-ADDR.ARPA forward zone.

Now I have my DNS servers answering about my primary zone, let say mycompany.es. For any requisites related to my applications,
I have to forward all dns queries related to, let say this domain: onedomaintoforward.com (and, all subdomains)
to a different dns server located on a machine on the internet. The main reason for this is the application that use this domain
works with a dedicated internet-line, so the dns queries must be resolved to point to the servers going throught this line,
with specific IP routes, etc).

So, for example, the query customerzone.cp.onedomaintoforward.com must be forwarded to this server (I have the IP address
for this server).

So, should I create a forward zone or a new in-addr.arpa forward zone? I am confused. I think that its the second one,
mainly because I set up a new forward zone but its seems that it doesnt works.

Could anyone give me a pointer to this?

Thank you so much!

Normally we set this with NS pointers listed in the Domain registry. So
a question: is this domain actually on the internet and you just have
funky routing to deal with? Or is this a domain that isn't real as far
as the internet is concerned?

Re: Yet another question about zone forwarding

Thank you Andy for your reply.

This domain its real, but only works throught our dedicated line. In our routers there is specific
routes for these net segments. For this reason, all the queries related to this domain
have to be "redirected" to this DNS, because it will resolved Ips from the dedicated line.

Its a little complicated, for this reason I am a little confused about how to deal with.

So would I be correct that this domain has public IPs related to it, but
that from where you stand, you are to point to a different/private set of
IPs? Or is it that those public IPs need to be separately routed?
Either of those options could be handled with some static IP routes in
the right places.

Are the public DNS Name Servers for that domain the same ones you need to
point to? At the same IP addresses?

Which OS is your DNS host running? NetWare of what version or OES of what
version?

One thought might be for you to set your DNS server as a secondary of
those primaries and do zone transfers.

Complicated confusion often means the best learning experience, and once
past the main hump, is usually pretty fun, so lets see if we can get you
there.
