DNS forwarding mistery

DEFclub asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Due to some mysterious traffic, I’ve configured my Microsoft (2003) DNS servers to route dns through a DNS sinkhole.  In DNS, I set the DNS forwarder to the IP of the sinkhole; however, I still see DNS traffic from the DNS server bypassing the sinkhole and hitting the firewall. What am I missing? I thought setting the DNS forwarder would do the trick but I’m missing something. Help ?
