Are you guaranteed that unbound will query _that_ specific BIND server?
Normally, you'll have multiple authoritative servers. Judging by your
description of what you do, you haven't updated the serial number when you
reload the zone in BIND. And if you're really not doing that, the slaves
will most likely not have picked up the changes either.
