It is my understanding, that pdns-recursor will never query forwarders, 
except for explicitly configured zones (see forward-zones setting). 
Instead, it will just query the root nameservers directly; the root 
nameserver IP addresses are hard-coded inside the recursor, but you can 
override them using the hint-file setting.
