I was wondering if I could keep using godaddy with my static records but use pdns only for my records which have constantly changing dynamic IPs. I'm not sure one can split records that way, meaning some records on one dns server and other records on another one. I assume I would probably have to make pdns my default dns server.

The only reason I've kept using godaddy is because I felt that my records could propagate much faster through them than using my own dns servers which I ran for many years.

I think I understand what you are saying. Use bind as the local dns server for the lan and use powerdns as the master dns server/s without resolve functions for users. I think this amounts to how I ran bind for many years and still do. I use bind server internally as the lan side dns servers. Before using godaddy, I also had a set of bind servers for master/slave public without resolve functions for users.

I think this is what I'm trying to explain above.

However, you are right about this so am spending more time on this to see if I might move away from godaddy.
