in GnuPG 2.1, keyserver operations are delegated to the dirmngr daemon.
This is a good move overall, because it means the daemon can do things
like keep track of which keyservers it has tried recently.
however, it means that some commands that users may be used to won't do
what they expect. For example, in 2.1:
gpg --keyserver foo.example --recv 0xdeadbeef
won't actually try to talk to foo.example, if dirmngr is already started
and has decided that it will use bar.example (e.g. from
Should gpg warn about the fact that --keyserver is being ignored here?
