Recursor knows nothing about databases....

RPZ data is stored in memory. Starting wit 4.2. you can write it to
disk (using the dumpFile attribute) and use that file for a quick load
on restart (using the seedFile attribute).

And yes, you'll need to specify the rpz zone in each recursor where
it should be used.
