[Pdns-users] Howto use pdns as DNS proxy with multiple recursion servers as source

Hello list,

is it possible to use pdns as something like a DNS-Proxy plus autoritative 
part? In our environment we have a backend server, which is able to contact 
three DNS-Servers wich work as forwarders and autoritative Server in one. 
Some times one of this server is down. At the moment we have a pdns 
on CentOS 5.4 running, wich has only the capability to connect to one 
recursor with the recursor statement in pdns.conf. If one of the three server 
is down and the one is configured, we have to manually add an alternative 
server and restart pdns.

We would like to have something that choose the nameserver wich is up 

Any hints?

Best regards,

Hubert Krause
