Need a little help with recursion in Bind

You may need to make a distinction between recursive looks, and
lookups that merely get information from the cache that was already
there by virtue of some allowed client's previous recursive lookup.  The
latest versions of bind give you the ability to control each of these 
kinds of
lookups, but I believe 9.2.2 does not.
