Can you run the recursor in '--trace' mode, and show the output when it
tries to resolve a domain for you that is hosted on the same machine?
Instead of 'host', could you use 'dig', as in 'dig blah.com
Dig is a little bit more verbose in its output.

Yes, it should just work, without special configuration.
