This means that the 126.96.36.199 DNS server is not configured to allow
recursive lookups. So, it is probably only going to answer queries for
domains that are local to that DNS server. Either that, or it isn't
allowing recursive lookups from your IP address range.

Subject: Re: [m0n0wall] DNS forwarder problem
I have been trying to investigate my DNS forwarding problem.
In the logs I am seeing this:
dnsmasq: nameserver 188.8.131.52 refused to do a recursive query
So it looks like I have to search the problem in the dnsmasq, but
are options to alter here something.
I already changed machines and NIC's and with both v1.2 as v1.3b2 I have
I did notice that only 1 of the 3 DNS servers gives this response, all
servers I get via DHCP on the WAN side.
Is there maybe a solution to eliminate the faulty DNS server?
Plz shine a light over this weird problem.....
