I am able to make work dnsdist and recursors only when they are placed on different servers, when I do that on the same server as I want (can someone tell me if it's a good practice?), I cannot reach to LISTEN udp on port 53 ....

The correct location (when using a package) is /etc/dnsdist/dnsdist.conf. The /etc/init/dnsdist.conf is for the upstart init-system.
