You have restricted recursion to the above 2 /19's.  you have no 
restriction on queries.

allow-query is a per-server or per-zone, allow-recursion is only per-server

You probably don't want to restrict queries at all, but you should restrict 
recursion.  If I understand what you want to do, you've done it.
