[Pdns-users] Recursor not resolving certain domains.

Hello all!

I was wondering if anyone could help me solve a problem I am having with
PowerDNS Recursor?

I am using PowerDNS as an authoratative nameserver and I have the recursor
site behind it on another port for any queries the nameserver cannon
answer. I have allow-recursion-override set because I run a series of fake

The problem I am having, specifically relates to one domain that the
recursor doesn't seem to be able to resolve, namely gogax.com. I have run
traceroutes from the server and they are all returned fine. Similarly, I
used dig to test whether the domain would resolve through google dns, and
it does. So in my opinion, the issue would appear to be with the recursor.

I put the recursor in trace mode recently and ran the query again. Here are
the results from the log:
is powerdns).

If anyone could tell me what I am doing wrong, it would be greatly
appreciated. Also, if there is any other information you guys need, please
let me know.

I am running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04, PowerDNS version 2.9.22-3 (installed
through the Ubuntu repositories using apt-get) and PowerDNS recursor
version 3.3-rc2 (installed via Stefan Schmidt's ppa).
