True.  It's also true that
recursive-clients       5000;
will increase the quota in question to 5000.  So the only sensible
explanation I can think of is that you made an error in updating the
configuration file.

BTW, it would always be helpful to identify the exact version of
BIND9 when you ask something like this.
