I'm getting the "no more recursive clients" error as well, but mine is due
to "quota reached."  I know I can increase the quota in named.conf, but that
is just a band-aid for the real issue.  The server in questions runs as the
pop3/backup smtp server and as a backup DNS server.  I've found some users
that are nailing DNS with queries and we contact them to clean up their
issues.  Is there or are the plans to have a way to throttle or limit the
number of queries that can be made from one source?
