You don't proxy to stub-zones, though. All a stub-zone is is a non-
standard location for particular zone. That is, "look here for zone
A, instead of here".
What I think you are getting at is that it should be possible to have
unbound and nsd running on a box, and have that box be a resolver for
most things or most clients, but actually be authoritative for the
stuff running on nsd. Or, to put it another way, run in a mode that
is like what you can do with BIND.
To do this, unbound would have to act as a true proxy for the zone
running in nsd. Even setting up a set of forward-zones isn't quite
this, because unbound will still do recursion for you.
Of course, I could be projecting an earlier conversation I had with
Wouter onto this one :)
