named selectively denies recursion

The trouble was indeed the change in BIND in 9.4.1P1.  I've added
an explicit "allow-recursion { any; };" to my configuration, and
now the server says that recursion is available to all queries,
regardless of which subnet the client is on.  I had been going by
web info for BIND 9.3 or earlier; my server is at version 9.4.2.

Thanks to all who responded.

        Vulgar and inactive minds confound familiarity with knowledge,
        and conceive themselves informed of the whole nature of things,
        when they are shown their form or told their use.
