So I have a problem that I don't know how to solve. This is my situation

Code:
              99.1          99.100
Client --> DNS --> subdomain DNS

I have a forward zone setup in the primary DNS that looks like this

Code:
zone "ose.mydomain.com" {
	type forward;
        forward only;
	forwarders { 192.168.99.100; };
};

This works when clients try to get to machines on ose.mydomain.com, however in ose.mydomain.com I have a wild card entry

Code:
*.apps.ose.mydomain.com   IN  A   192.168.200.61

If the client has their primary dns set to 192.168.99.100 the wild card lookup works. However if the client's primary DNS is set to 192.168.99.1 the forward/reverse lookups work EXCEPT for the wild card.

At one point I tried having a forward zone specifically for the subdomain

Code:
zone "apps.ose.mydomain.com" {
	type forward;
        forward only;
	forwarders { 192.168.99.100; };
};

But this didn't work. I am at a loss as to why neither of these approaches worked

I'm kind of surprised this hasn't gotten any responses... is what I am trying to do wrong or crazy in a general sense? Is it reasonable to expect this behaviour
