Here you go:

Comma separated list of 'zonename=IP' pairs. Queries for zones listed here
will be forwarded to the IP address listed.  forward-zones=
ds9a.nl=, powerdns.com=  Available since 3.1.

Since version 3.1.5, multiple IP addresses can be specified. Additionally,
port numbers other than 53 can be configured.  Sample syntax:
powerdns.com=;, or on the command line:

Forwarded queries have the 'recursion desired' bit set to 0, meaning that
this setting is intended to forward queries to authoritative servers.

Same as forward-zones, parsed from a file. Only 1 zone is allowed per line,
specified as follows: ds9a.nl=,  No comments
are allowed.  Available since 3.1.5.

Since 3.2, zones prefixed with a '+' are forwarded with the recursion-desired bit set to one, for which see 'forward-zones-recurse'. Default behaviour without '+' is as with 'forward-zones'.

Like regular 'forward-zones' (see above), but forwarded queries have the
'recursion desired' bit set to 1, meaning that this setting is intended to
forward queries to authoritative servers or to resolving servers.  Available
since 3.2.
