I don't know about the RPMs, but I have installed both of them concurrently 
on Debian.  The recursor listens on localhost port 54 and the authorita- 
tive server on all interfaces on port 53 (forwarding recursive queries to 
localhost port 54).  So it should generally work for you, too.

Perhaps the RPMs conflict with each other due to both the recursor and the 
authoritative server running on port 53 by default?  However that isn't 
really a justification for making the packages conflict with each other...
