Those Postfix logs should be very useful. Can you post them?

Wait... what kind of tests did you run and what are the results?
"Recursion" is a DNS server capability so you have to check your DNS
servers and while making any test against them, ensure you are always
quering the same DNS server.
Tools like "dig @ip_of_name_server_to_use" (in linux) and "nslookup -
debug hostname domain" (in windows) can help a lot. Both tools, by
default, will request recursion to the server so if that option is not
available, you'll get a warning.
