comment Why BIND does not use the forwarders any more?
Checked the logs, no hint there. I am confident that for some reason the forwarder I used so far (Norton ConnectSafe: 199.85.126.20) does not work with the above options. When I switched to OpenDNS it worked. The strange thing is that Norton ConnectSafe works when in resolv.conf (you may check it if you want).

Added all the options suggested, still no luck. From what I see, bind always uses the root servers to resolve. Added "recursion yes" well, still no luck.

I just typed "at" in the comment instead of "@" since @ has other semantics in stack exchange comments. The command issued on the terminal had indeed @.

Indeed but on the client machines /etc/resolv.conf has as nameserver the router IP and not IP of external DNS servers.

To act either as a DNS cache or a forwarder you need to run a DNS software (bind). The router does not listen to port 53.
