Thank you for you're input. I found a more or less similar solution
tried Google first, but the art there is to formulate the correct search
I seem to have it working by doing this:
1. Add A record for subns.example.com
2. Add NS record for sub.example.com to subns.example.com
Although Petr says to stay away from forwarder, it does not work without
them. I had to enter zone forwarding addresses on example.com.
After updates I only got it working after restarting named on the IPA
Thank you for the answers
