Good. Try sending queries to your pdns_recursor explicitly. Take note which
IP address it is listening on when you start, and send some queries its way,
like this:

dig www.poweredns.com @
host www.powerdns.com

By default 'dig' and 'host' etc send their queries to the address configured
in /etc/resolv.conf, which may not point at
