Hi there,

I am just trying to understand what you are trying to do.  Are you aware
that PowerDNS has two packages? There is the powerdns-server and
powerdns-recursor.  The pdns-server doesn't do recursion, that's what the
recursor package is for.  I hope I am understanding your question.

Kind regards
