This means that what you specified as recursor is not doing TCP for you. Ie,
you are asking a recursive question which needs to be handed off to the
recursor, which doesn't appear to do TCP/IP.

Look at the 'recursor=' line in your configuration and verify that it is
doing TCP by issuing the dig command above, but with @the-recursor-ip

Good luck!
