If that succeeds, the answer packet is sent back immediately without involving the recursor in any way. This means that for questions for which there is no answer, PowerDNS will consult the recursor for an recursive query, even if PowerDNS is authoritative for a domain! This will only cause problems if you 'fake' domains which don't really exist."

I think we no longer do this, and that the documentation is in that case out of date. It complicated things too badly.

If you want to override the internet, you may have more success the other way around, put a PowerDNS Recursor with specific authoritative data as an auth server.
