Got it!  The permissions are corrected.  Again, many thanks.

Now that I have the latest version of PDNS, I would like to ask for
guidance on recursion.

If I want to provide authoritative dns for several hundred public domains,
am I correct that (as of version  4.1.0), I need to install PowerDNS
Recursor (v 4.5.X) and dnsdist (v 1.6.X) in addition to PowerDNS
Authoritative Server (v 4.4.X), to allow for recursion?  I'm following the
migration plan scenario 2 under
