if it's in the secondary zone, DNS_A shouldn't have to contact the
server that hosts the matching primary zone. It should've been able to
answer ClientA request (assuming the zone are transfered from the
Master to DNS_A). However, if it's not in it's zone the DNS_A will
forward the request to the primary server and if that doesn't work and
DNS is configured in non-exclusive mode, it will go out to the root
hint and look for it.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
