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 :)
