Hi João,

stub-zone can have NSD as the target.  It is just like a forward zone
but unbound handles recursion itself and expects to talk to an
authoritative server.  (apart from hosting CNAMEs locally that point
out-of-zone you would not notice the difference, DNS misconfiguration at
its best)

Best regards,
