[Pdns-users] CNAME record to an external domain

I have a problem using CNAME records pointing to an external domain.

First of all, I have already read this http://www.nabble.com/CNAME-answer-problem--t4246749.html and tried everytnig but it still does not work.

My software:

FreeBSD 6.2p4

So I have recursor up and running and the line


in pdns.conf.

If I try and query an external domain directly, let's say "dig www.somwhere-else.com" I get the response without problems, so recursor works just fine.

Now, say PDNS has example.com which has the following records:

www.example.com A
www2.example.com CNAME www.example.com
www3.example.com CNAME www.somwhere-else.com

www ---> works
www2 --> works
www3 --> NXDOMAIN

What am I doing wrong, where is the cacth?

Kind regards, Marko Kobal.
