Is it possible to forward recursive queries to another server using pdns 
authoritative server? its a genuine question.. because that would 
eliminate needing pdns-recursor on the same host completely... you could 
just recurse any other zones that are not authoritative to googledns or 
opendns, and you'd be sorted... as your cache would keep recursive 
queries in check on one server (like BIND). i havent seen any forward 
forward-zones-recurse type setting in pdns auth server (2.9x at least), 
that why i ask.
