A "forward zone" is a way to configure forwarding on a per-domain basis.
A zone statement of type forward can contain a forward and/or forwarders
statement, which will apply to queries within the domain given by the
zone name. If no forwarders statement is present or an empty list for
forwarders is given, then no forwarding will be done for the domain,
canceling the effects of any forwarders in the options statement. Thus
if you want to use this type of zone to change the behavior of the
global forward option (that is, "forward first to", then "forward only",
or vice versa, but want to use the same servers as set globally) you
need to re-specify the global forwarders.

so perhaps delete
somthing like

forward first;

in your config

 and/or as said cancel forwarders section total
