How to test:
1) install IPA with --setup-dns and defined --forwarder
2) query record not-managed by installed IPA (e.g. from
localhost - should pass both with and without the patch
3) query record not-managed by installed IPA from other computer from
different subnet - fails without the patch and should pass with the

Update name server configuration file to allow any host to issue
recursive queries (allow-recursion statement).
