If you have auth running in front of recursor, auth will give the best *auth* answer it has for a question. This behaviour could be slightly better, but what you want does not make sense - your recursor doesnt even know about opennic.

If you want to run both an auth and a recursor, and you want the auth to host the opennic root, and you want your recursor to honor the opennic root, you need to point your clients to the recursor directly and set up forward-zones accordingly.
