So your DC is authoritative for the 'company.com' dns domain and holds
all the AD dns domain records.
zaphod is authoritative for 'company.com' dns domain and presumably
holds none of the AD dns domain records

Can you not not see what is wrong here and why forwarding doesn't work ?

You should have used a subdomain of 'company.com' for your AD dns
domain (perhaps ad.company.com)

When you ask your DC for 'dnsclient.company.com' (where 'dnsclient' is
not an AD domain member), your DC will not forward it anywhere because
it is authoritative for the 'company.com' dns domain, it will just
return 'not known' or words to that effect.

I, personally, would transfer all the dns & dhcp roles from zaphod to
your DC, or start again with a new subdomain on your DC.
 
Your forwarders need to be outside your AD dns domain.
