I already put a record for "localhost" in for the domain that I have the 
resolver configured to search through by default, ian-justman.com.

And I tell PowerDNS to pass queries requiring recursion to a backend, in 
this case, pdns_recursor, which I rebuilt after your fix to it had been 
posted to the list.  Up until that time, I had been using pdnsd.

Though I could have pdns_daemon only answer authoritatively then have the 
local system talk dircectly to the recursor for queries requring recursion.
