Sorry that I blamed pdns_recursor being not fast enough. Please excuse
that I was writing faster than I thought about implications.

pdns_recursor indeed is really fast, but to me, the use case described
smells like a "every query must work, because the CNAME is resolved for
every db connect of a customers php script, and dbs move arround
quickly" ... pdns_recursor is not designed for this usecase, dnsdist
will do much better job.

Cheers Thomas
