A couple of thoughts here .  Either
- SElinux is doing its magic and blocking - this should be logged in the syslog if so, or
- Your SNMP is running with chroot enabled and /var/run/pdns-recursor doesn't exist in the chroot environment
-  rec_control is trying to generate a tmp file as the snmp user so doesn't have write permission.
- Your SNMP daemon is using a temporary file for the rec_control output which it is trying to put in /var/run/pdns-recursor
