no, it doesn't.  In order to ensure that your resolver clients are serviced
properly, you need to keep the DNS query rate high enough that if someone
has a large bcp38-enabled botnet, they can trash the hell out of whoever
they want.

The best solution is to disable open recursion completely, and police your
clients regularly.
