Scenario is NSD (whether running on localhost or a secondary port) to serve
internal only DNS, with Unbound for caching and forwarding or resolver.
In this particular case the plan is to forward all non-local queries to the
With the local zones setup as forward-zone's everything works:
Local zone information is OK.
With the local zones setup as stub-zone's the local zones do not get served:
stub-addr: 127.0.0.1 at 53
Local zone information is not resolved.
Without the wildcard forwarding, using unbound recursively both the forward-
zone and the stub-zone styles work.
As forward-zone's are supposed to be recursion capable the stub-zone
configuration should be the preferred setup yet the wildcard forwarding, which
honors other defined forward-zone's takes precedence over the defined stub-
zone's rendering them useless.
