    I wanted to know if the forwarder tab of the property of my DNS server is the correct place to put an ISPs DNS servers?

    The reason I ask is because I am confused on the meaning of a recursive DNS server and query.

    I understand the concept of a client requesting the ip address of a host name via

    local dns server
    local dns cached memory
    dns static table
    root server
    TLD --> top level domain
    SLD --> second level domain
    and so on until the name is resolved

    What is the meaning of recursive in this context?

    That is.
    recursive query is when the dns server resolve the name on behalf
    of the client. It does the full job.
