I think this could be (somewhat) mitigated by running
pdns_recursor on 127.0.0.1 and only allowing recursive queries
from pdns_server on the same host, and let noone else talk to the
For outward-facing DNS, I would use just pdns_server without any
recursor; that way, there is no possibility for an external
resolver to get pdns_server to recurse.
