Hi Darren,

The forward-zones statement indeed only accepts 1 ip per zone to be
redirected. I haven't taken any time to inspect the code, so I'm in the dark
about any trivial changes that could be made.

As far as I know the forward-zones statement should work, although only with
a single ip per zone.
