You can't do quite what you want, which is to forward queries for
website.my-domain.com to the same servers as everything else (picked up
from /etc/resolv.conf, presumably)
You can forward website.my-domain.com to a specific set of nameservers,
which might happen to be the same as the ones in /etc/resolv.conf
Because the domain part is longer than that in the "local=", it will
take priority, for that domain.
It may be worth adding special case where 0.0.0.0 represents the set of
servers from /etc/resolv.conf, but this is something for the future, it
does NOT exist in current releases.
