[Pdns-users] allow-from and recursion

Installed PDNS 4.1.3 on a ubuntu 18.04.

I have try to follow 
https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/guides/recursion.html setting up 
scenario 1:

Any address I enter in "allow-from" is able to query the server and 
recursion works ok, but no other query from the Internet is successful 
unless I add unfortunately this is not acceptable to have a 
fully open server to the Internet.

In bind we have "allow-recursion" and a list of all the addresses the 
server will respond to and still respond to any query to domains itself 
hosts .

How can I configure pdns and pdns-recursor to respond to queries from 
anyone to the authoritative server but only recurse to the allowed list? 
without having an open dns on the Internet?
