Problem

I want to tell a BIND server that a particular DNS zone can be resolved at some arbitrary DNS server. I do not want to forward all requests through this arbitrary DNS server.

Solution

In /etc/named.conf:

zone "myzone.local" {
     type forward;
     forwarders { ip.of.ad.server; ip.of.ad.backup; };
};

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
