What exactly is in your /etc/resolv.conf? Just the IP address of the IPA

So if all IdM services are running, you do not seem to have named
observing forwarders settings but if you only run named on the IdM
machine and nothing else, it starts to observe them?

Can you show dig output for one of the problematic records to see which
DNS server is answering the query?
