I’am currently running the latest pdns-recursor 4.x master on Ubuntu 14.04.

I was wondering why an apt-get update cannot resolve repo.powerdns.com, but a ping is able to do so. This only happens if /etc/resolv.conf points to my recursor. If I use as nameserver everything works as expected.

This is somewhat strange, because is the forwarding dns for my local recursor.

Maybe it’s how the apt-get tries to resolve the name? The only thing I found was, that getent is not returning the correct results.

- with local recursor as nameserver
getent ahosts repo.powerdns.com
<nothing in return>, exit code is 2 (One or more supplied key could not be found in the database)

-with as nameserver STREAM repo1.powerdns.com DGRAM RAW 

Is this a known bug? Never had any trouble with the 3.7.3 release.
