The best way to do this is to run multiple copies of PowerDNS
simultaneously. PowerDNS has easy support for this using the 'virtual'
configuration feature.

See http://doc.powerdns.com/virtual.html

Good luck!

PowerDNS itself uses very little memory. Running 4 copies of PowerDNS will
only add 10MB to your RSS. So if it becomes really slow, something else is
going on.

Please let us know.
