Hahahaha ... yes, thanks a lot Bert for your quick response. 

I'm just looking for best performance in our external powerdns servers. Actually we have 2 Auth servers with MySQL replication (all zones in native mode) with two Recursors as a front-end.

For me maybe is better to place dnsdist on one of the Auth Servers, as I think the  Recursor servers will have more load.
But I'm not the best on this, for that I look for a good advice from the masters.

Hi Alejandro,

It can be installed on auth, on recursor or even a separate machine if you want. dnsdist is not integrated with PowerDNS, so it does not need to be on the same machine. It is dnsdist, not 'pdnsdist' ;-)

Good luck!
