New to the list & PowerDNS. Pleased to meet you. I have about 50 
domains, 10 VMs and 10 VPN clients I would like to setup DNS for. I went 
through DuckDuckGo and a bunch of ML archives but did not find any hints 
of a best practice architecture for this small setup. I did find:


Is this deduction of scenario 2 "New situation" pic on the right correct?

Internet -> dnsdist -> auth (for serving the public zones)
VMs/VPN clients -> dnsdist -> auth (for public/private zones)
VMs/VPN clients -> dnsdist -> recursor -> Internet (for the rest)

Thank you.
