The default ACL for allow-recursion is { localhost; localnets; }. That means it will work for clients on the same networks as your server, but not for other networks.

In your options or view statement, add this:

	allow-recursion { localhost; network1; networks2; [...] };

Instead of "network1", put in the definition of the allowed network, such as "10/8" or "192.168.0/24". You can also use a named ACL, such as one defined with the "acl" statement.
