Is it not possible to run both a caching lookup server using Unbound (in 
FreeBSD 10) and an authoritative server using NSD (installed from ports) 
on the same box?

BIND used to perform both functions as I remember, provided you configured 
it as such. Does NSD also do caching?

We have a /27 so I could configure one or the other to listen on a 
different IP, but only if I really have to.

I got: 
service local_unbound start
