Have you configured it to point to a resolver as well? For testing, maybe

will do, or you can use a local instance of powerdns recursor (the 
example in the guide shows [::1]:5300, assuming that you're running pdns 
recursor on the same box but listening on a non-standard port 5300 so as 
not to clash)

These are the NS records of plate-assets.com:

plate-assets.com.    172800    IN    NS    ns1.tikklik.nl.
plate-assets.com.    172800    IN    NS    ns2.tikklik.nl.
plate-assets.com.    172800    IN    NS    ns3.tikklik.com.

So is ns3.tikklik.com the nameserver you are testing on?

$ dig @ns3.tikklik.com version.bind chaos txt
version.bind.        5    CH    TXT    "PowerDNS Authoritative Server 
4.1.3 (built May 24 2018 13:07:58 by buildbot at 908e810129e1)"

That looks reasonable.

What does that resolver return when you query for www.plate-assets.com ?
