Hi Taylor,

Thanks for enabling DNSSEC.

The issue is simply that dnssec-tools.org does not have a secure
delegation from .org, the DS is not returned by the .org servers:
dig @d0.org.afilias-nst.org. dnssec-tools.org +dnssec

I found this with unbound-host -vd which said (in lots of output):
info: Successfully primed trust anchor <ORG. DNSKEY IN>
info: NSEC3s for the referral proved no DS.
info: Verified that response is INSECURE

They presumably have a dlv entry, thus the dlv anchor works.

I would advise you to install a cron job to pull the anchors.mf and
update it.  A script that does so and checks the PGP signature is in the
unbound source tarball contrib/update-itar.sh :-)

This makes sure that you have the latest trust anchors, otherwise they
go stale and things stop working next year.

Best regards,
