I want "PowerDNS recursor" to use the ISP name servers (in addition to 
other servers, just in case) when recursing.
(That is what the "it" was supposed to reference to).

Should I use the forward-domains directive for that, as I did use this 
for the "local" domain I use internally? Or should I override the 
root-hints a bit?

On my previously used Windows 2003 DNS server I configured "forwarders" 
for this purpose.

Thanks for your effort so far,

- Joris
