CDNS Debian allow-recursion

    I¨m trying to add recursion paramters to my dns server on debian. However if I place it in any of the named.conf named.conf.local or named.properties under /etc/bind/ the system don't care and do response to all

    If i put this in any of the above files under /var/named/run-root/etc/bind/ I can't start bind again.

    the following lines are those i try to add:

    options {
    allow-recursion {
    recursion no;
    allow-transfer {
    allow-query {;

    can anyone tell me how to do this on debian 4.0 R4a I386?

    Found the solution....

    in /var/named/run-root/etc/bind/named.conf.options

    add the following line ad the end of the file, but before the last };

    allow-recursion {; };

    However, this will for some resone not refuse the request, but will point the client to the root servers
