[Pdns-users] PDNS & pdns-recursor on same machine problems

I have a set of authoritative servers running PDNS.  One of these servers is
also running pdns-recursor which is bound to a separate IP address.  The
recursor is having problems resolving domains that the authoritative
instance is authoritative for.  Trying to resolve hostnames within these
domains doesn't bail with a NXDOMAIN or a FAIL, but it just does not return
an IP address:


jbaird at thunder:~$ host www.example.com

jbaird at thunder:~$


In order to get the recursor to resolve these domains correctly, I am having
to setup forwarding on the recursor as such:




Is there a way to make the recursor resolve these domains without manually
forwarding each of them back to the IP address that the authoritative server
is listening on?  Shouldn't it use recursion for these queries?
