No, this assumption is not valid.
A recursive resolver emits different queries, and different kinds of
queries, to those a client sends *to* a recursive resolver. Most
notably, EDNS is enabled and this large IP/UDP fragments can be
expected, particularly if you are doing DNSSEC validation.
Whether that's your problem I don't know. But you can't assume the
network path is good just because you can query googles public recursive
