Forwarders just allows you to configure BIND to forward all requests for zones
it does not manage to specified name server. Normally, this is not required if
DNS is set correctly and BIND can simply get results by querying from top "."
to the required zone (e.g. "example.com.").
But in internal networks or special deployments, you need to set up the
forwarders, yes. Just make sure they point to some recursive DNS server. More
on this topic in this book for example:
About your problem - it is probably DNS. Check where your resolv.conf is
pointing, check if DNS (named service) is running. Check that IPA is really
running (ipactl status) and you should find where the problem is.
