I am installing powerdns to learn more about DNS and am meeting some

I am installing pdns on two nearly identical Raspberry Pi's.  I am
following the instructions at

Other than setting *recursor=*, essentially everything is at
default.  However, the two installations differ somewhat. When I checked
for processes containing the string "pdns", one machine has:

root      7982     1  0 May20 ?        00:01:05 /usr/sbin/pdns_server
--daemon --guardian=yes
pdns      7985  7982  0 May20 ?        00:00:04
/usr/sbin/pdns_server-instance --daemon --guardian=yes

while the other has:

root      1165     1  0 00:45 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/pdns_server
root      1277  1165  0 00:48 ?        00:00:00
/usr/sbin/pdns_server-instance --daemon=no

What should the settings be and where can I modify the settings?
