[Pdns-users] problem with 4.1.0 recursion removed

I have been using 4.0.x pdns/recursor setup to serve DNS records of
phone numbers. For example, a domain name in records table could be
188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.8.5.3.e164.arpa. Phone numbers can be random, i.e.,
they don't necessarily share a common prefix. The records are
added/removed dynamically when phone numbers are allocated/released.
My usage corresponds to Scenario 1 of the migration guide:
i.e,, pdns server receives queries from users, serves them itself if
found in database and forwards to Internet otherwise.
If I have understood the migration guide correctly, in 4.1.0 every time
when a phone number is allocated/released, I would need to modify a text
file (forward-zones variable in recursor.conf or forward-zones-file) in
addition to updating pdns database. If that is true, it would totally
nullify the benefit of PowerDNS, where DNS records can be stored in
I hope I misunderstood the migration guide. If so, please let me know
how I can preserve the existing database only behavior in 4.1.0.
