cannot resolve repository through bind.

Greetings.
I have two servers: cphq(192.168.1.15) and hdfs1(192.168.1.25)
my cphq server has named(bind)
I'm trying to install ambari-client.

My problem is that I am receiving this error:  Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again

I have tried yum clean all, and other commands with no avail.
I am reasonably convinced it's my bind settings on cphq.
here they are:
//
// named.conf
//
// Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS
// server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).
//
// See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
//

options {
//	listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; };
//	listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
	directory 	"/var/named";
	dump-file 	"/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
        memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
	allow-query     { any; };
        allow-transfer  { localhost; 192.168.1.15; };
	recursion yes;

	dnssec-enable yes;
	dnssec-validation yes;
	dnssec-lookaside auto;

	/* Path to ISC DLV key */
	bindkeys-file "/etc/named.iscdlv.key";

	managed-keys-directory "/var/named/dynamic";
};

logging {
        channel default_debug {
                file "data/named.run";
                severity dynamic;
        };
};

zone "." IN {
	type hint;
	file "named.ca";
};

zone "cutlerplace.net" IN {
     type master;
     file "cutlerplace.net.zone";
     allow-update { none; };
};

zone "google.com" {
type forward;
forwarders { 8.8.8.8 ; 8.8.4.4 ; };
};

include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
include "/etc/named.root.key";

Open in new window


As you can see I even added a forward to google in attempt to run dns for it, but still nogo.  same error.
Any ideas?
thanks

forwarders/forward-only should go in main options section to gain anything.

so how should it read?
forwarders { 8.8.8.8 ; 8.8.4.4 ; };
and that's in in the options section?
Thanks.

forward only;
forwarders {ip_your_provider_gave; other_ip;};
