Configuration issue

Hi Sonic

Thanks for your reply, but that will only have the queries answered by a different server. I don't want them answered at all. The endpoints that will be configured with that DNS server must only be able to resolve the domains that I will specifically configure with a forward zone. Everything else must be denied, sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my initial query.

Two ways, as a validator that queries the root servers and follows the chain, or use a wildcard forward for all of the other domains you don't want to specifically route to a particular cache.
Ex. of forward:
       name: "."
