SERVFAIL response when "Enable Forwarding Mode" is checked

Hey All -
So I am using 2.2.5 and use OpenDNS for content filtering purposes.
Under System -> General Setup I have the OpenDNS IPs listed
Under Services -> DNS Resolver I have it enabled, also have Enable Forwarding Mode checked
DHCP hands out the OpenDNS IP as my DNS server (192.168.0.254 in this case)
Running a nslookup I get this response:
** server can't find cnn.com.home.mydomain.com: SERVFAIL
It looks like it's appending my own internal domain to the tail end of whatever is being queried. Naturally, all connected devices are having DNS resolution issues.
If I uncheck Enable Forwarding Mode - all is well:
Is this a bug or some other configuration issue?

Stop forwarding to OpenDNS with DNSSEC enabled. OpenDNS does NOT support DNSSEC.
Agreed, if your going to use forwarder mode and want dnssec where your sending has to support it.
As to your query, yeah depending on your os and setup its going to append your machines domain suffix to your queries.. If you don't want that to happen then end your query with .
