If you're forwarding to an authoritative server, it should be
"forward-zones" not "forward-zones-recurse". You'd use
forward-zones-recurse if forwarding to another recursive server, like
However I don't think this will stop it working, i.e. pdns-auth will
probably answer correctly even if RD is set.
dig +norec @192.168.0.32 millsresidence.com. soa
Other than that, I'd look at server logs, and tcpdump to see if traffic
is going between recursor and auth.
