Okay, today I finally got some time to get this sorted. It appears it was
indeed a bug in pdns-recursor 4.0.0~alpha2-2 on Ubuntu/Xenial.
The bug had been fixed upstream in May 2016:
I've filed a bugreport for Ubuntu here:
It looks like of Debian and Ubuntu, only Ubuntu/Xenial (LTS) is affected.
All the others run 3.x or 4.0.1 or higher (the latter ones include
9d534f2a and the former didn't appear affected by this).
Thanks again for your prompt reply!
