I run both unbound and nsd in the very same jail.

Nsd as authoritative nameserver listens at public-IPv4:53 natted to that
jail's internal IPv4 *and* public-IPv6 directly bound to that specific

Unbound listens to some other local-IPv4:53 bound to that jail.

resolv.conf will guide all local sevices running at host or in all other
available jails to that local-IP:53 of the listening unbound server.
