Recursion is actually some sort of process where the DNS Server you queries will query on it's turn other DNS Server to resolve your query.
When disabling recursion, if your DNS Server cannot solve the query, you'll get no answer to your query on the other hand if you restrict recursion, the DNS Server will try to solve the query locally, if not send it to a forwarder.

Hopefully that clears up the sky a bit?
