    Is it possible to install a DNS server and configure it as forwarder for all request except to few domain like, that should be sent to a specific NS server?
    I mean all requests to ns with IP, while the request for and to server
    No matter the DNS server (Bind, Powerdns,...), the only requirement is not Windows or something to pay.
    I see that powerdns recursor can do something similar but I did not achive to send the and to another server.

    With Bind it would be a caching name server that is secondary server for domains and, that is secondary to My "DNS and BIND" book calls this partial-secondary server.
  3. Yes, Caching DNS Server can be configured with the Bind dns package.
