With a pdns 2.9.20-8 (from debian package), i can't resolve external
cname. pdns is authoritative for my domains and recursive for others. I
know it's bad, but it's not my choise.

After some web browsing, i don't find a conf option to allow powerdns to
use its resolver to answer to external cname.

I've read this :
http://www.nabble.com/CNAME-answer-problem--td12085558.html which
explain that everything it's ok. It's right for a authoritative server,
but if we want to use pdns as a recursive and authoritative server
external CNAME should be resolver in first part by pdns-server (for
cname) and pdns-recursor (for cname answer). Isn't it ?

This is really impossible or i do something bad ?
