Forwarders in FreeIPA behave in the same way as in BIND 9.9 and the behavior
you describe seems to be okay.

The behavior is summarized in a nice table here:

In other words, there is no thing like 'look into this zone and look into that
zone if the first zone does not contain an answer'. Such behavior would break
the very basic principle of DNS - division to independent, self-contained
zones. What are you trying to achieve? What is the use-case?

Please note that in FreeIPA < 4.1 zones with non-empty 'forwarders' attribute
were automatically configured as forward zones. The split to pure forward and
master zones happened in FreeIPA 4.1.
