In http://doc.powerdns.com/built-in-recursor.html#RECURSOR-SETTINGS
you will find:

If running on an SMP system with enough memory, this feature forks  
PowerDNS so it benefits from two processors. Experimental. Renames  
controlsockets, so care is needed to connect to the right one using  
rec_control, using --socket-pid. Available in versions of the Recursor  
before 3.2, replaced by the 'threads' setting.

threads=4 in your recursor.conf will generate 4 recursor threads that  
will each share their max-cache-entries/4 caches.

best regards,
