I think, there's one problem currently not solved properly:
PDNS caches backend queries and whole packets, so the returned answer 
is probably a packet already sent to another client at a different 
location - if you don't set query-ttl and cache-ttl to zero.

For this type of services it would be nice if they could tell PDNS 
that it shouldn't cache packets or queries from these backends.
