Bug #342

bind9 needs a 'allow-recursion' line to allow machines in the acl but not on a directly attached net, to work

allow-recursion is required if you have (for example) two cerowrt routers and want one bind instance to provide name service to them both.

view “internal” {
match-clients { “internal-net”; };
recursion yes;
allow-recursion { any; };

The default in cerowrt appears to be correct in this case.

It was just wrong on the dns server I was trying to interop with.
