This is good than a normal forwarder if there are changes in DNS server not
managed by us. It automatically updates SOA, NS and A records. There will be part
time zone transfers.

Delegation:
DNS delegation can be simply explained by the process used by Root servers ('.') to
point to its top level domains. When a request for google.com is received by the root
server, it provides the nameserver address of 'com' and which inturn gives the
nameserver address of 'google'. This is a good example of DNS delegation.
The delegated domain should be a child domain.
When we delegate a child domain to its parent, its SOA and NS records will be
created in the parent domain.
The parent domain does not require the permission of its subdomain for
delegation.

Conditional Forwarding:
In forwarding, the DNS server will forward any query that cannot be resolved by
that server to a DNS server IP address set as forwarder. We can set any DNS server
in the world as a forwarder (Provided it resolves the query). But in conditional
forwarding, we can specify a DNS domain name also. Only the queries intended for
that domain will be sent to the forwarded DNS.
