Hi Andrea,

You can't change PowerDNS Recursor configuration settings from Lua. The
setting you mention however can be reloaded with 'rec_control reload-zones'.

If you want to forward dynamically based on IP address, dnsdist might be a
better fit for your needs, http://www.dnsdist.org/

Also, if you can explain your usecase (what you are trying to achieve), we
might have better suggestions.

Good luck!
