I'm having a problem with pdns recursion. It may be just my
understanding of DNS that is broken, in which case I apologise.
I have a pgsql backend which is serving a domain: X.com
X.com is just virtualhost information so it contains lots of records
www.X.com CNAME realserver.Y.com.
all the information for Y.com is contained in another (BIND) DNS
server (which implements split horizon).
What I'm trying to do is get the answer from pdns to include the
information from the BIND server at:
I have a pdns.conf like this:
On the pdns box, when I do an AXFR or a non-recrusive query I get the
pdns:/# host -r www.X.com
Using domain server:
www.X.com is an alias for realserver.Y.com.
however, when I do a "normal" client query against pdns I get 'not
When I look at the packets it looks as if the BIND server is being
asked it's views on www.X.com resolution. I thought that pdns would
first resolve the part this it *is* authoritative for and then ask the
recursor to find the rest.
Am I wrong? Have I misunderstood? Or is something stranger than that
going on here?
I'm using a debian pdns marked as version 2.9.20-6.
