Allow empty forwarders for forward zone #299

In some scenarios (for example when working with DNSBLs) it is required/handy to disallow queries to a certain zone to be send to the default forwarder and instead execute the query against the root NS yourself.

The last paragraph of this article explains how the forward zones should look like.

When trying to create these zones with facileManager/fmDNS an error is displayed that it is not possible to not specifiy a forwarder thus leaving the forwarder empty.

Is there a workaround for this/can this behavior be changed in a future release?

Thanks for the report and use case that I was not aware of. A fix will be in the next release.
