I have setup DNS forwarders on my DNS server using my ISP’s DNS server as the forwarder.  For some reason, on my firewall I see a lot of DNS traffic originating at my DNS server going to many domains on the Internet including the root servers.  Anyone know why this would be happening if I have setup my DNS server to forward out as opposed to doing the lookups itself?
