Hi there!

<https://doc.powerdns.com/recursor/settings.html#forward-zones> states:

If I set it up this way, all the responses coming back to the recursor are 
having their AA bits stripped (set to 0) (presumably by this code 
<https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/blob/master/pdns/pdns_recursor.cc#L814>  when 
forwarded back to the client. Is this intentional? Would it make sense to leave 
the AA bit alone when forwarding back authoritative responses? If not, why not?
