PDNS: Add support for authoritative dns server
Open, NormalPublicFEATURE REQUEST

Description

We need to have way define authoritative zones and hosts in them
simple enough to build minimal infrastructure without external dns or maybe little bit more

Since we moving to pdns we now have possibility to implement that
see https://doc.powerdns.com/md/recursor/settings/#auth-zones

We can build BIND like zones and serve them from recursor.

This approach should replace static host mapping that current add hosts to /etc/hosts

@c-po actually pdns can load /etc/hosts so no need to replace
just different use cases, static hosts mapping works for really basic scenarios
all rest should be done via zones
