in 2.1.9, gpg started deprecating that option.  From gnupg's NEWS file:

  * dirmngr: Add option --keyserver.  Deprecate that option for gpg.

But the error you originally cited was a parcimonie error, not a gpg
error, right?  i don't know enough about parcimonie to know why it might
think there are different rules for the different versions.

I recommend that you put your preferred keyserver into dirmngr.conf,
even if it duplicates the entry in gpg.conf.  does that solve the
parcimonie issue?
