So just enable forwarders in your DNS server.  That's easy.

I don't see why you want to have a DNS server that does not function
properly, and spend hours trying to hack your OS to deal with it's
problems.  Spend 5 min, and fix your DNS server.

If your DNS server is expected to resolve all names on the internet it
needs to have forwarders, or recursion enabled.  If you only intend it
to resolve authoritative domains only, you should not use it for
client resolution.
