That sounds like expected behaviour.

PDNS *authoritative* is an *authoritative* server only.  That is: it 
cannot resolve queries on behalf of clients.

PDNS *recursor* is a separate package.  This is what you need if you 
want to run a local caching nameserver that accepts queries from other 
VMs or clients and performs the lookups on their behalf.
