This is done for practical purposes. In cases where you have multiple IPA
servers scatted across the globe you most likely do not want to use the same
set of forwarders for all IPA DNS servers - usually you want to use nearest
forwarder possible.

'ipa dnsconfig' is global for the whole cluster, /etc/named.conf is local for
that particular server.

It would be nice to move per-server configuration to LDAP to make it available
via IPA user interface but up to know it did not get priority.
