Your servers running bind should be able to resolve outside names
with or without a forwarder if they have internet access.   Are you
sure /etc/resolv.conf is pointing to the right nameservers?   Try
using 'dig @resolver_ip some_name'  to test both the dnsmasq system
and your bind servers individually.
