How? Bound to different ports I am guessing?

That won't work.  The slave needs to contact the master - it cannot 
contact a recursor.

You could configure the slave to contact the master directly on its 
non-standard port (e.g. x.x.x.x:5300).

Better would be to bind the authoritative server to a different IP 
address, or run it in its own VM.  Another option, if the slaves are 
also pdns, is to use a database backend with native database replication.
