The reponses for this query, the DNSKEY and the A responses are over 3
Kb. You likely have path MTU trouble. Something is wrong with your
fragments. Perhaps you own firewall is set to stop UDP fragments?
There is the OARC reply size tester to help with that.
The error you see in your logs (I saw your attachments earlier, Leen),
are that the system returns very short (0 byte?) UDP datagrams to
unbound. Likely because of the UDP fragmentation issues, or less likely
because of a server-error at icann.org nameservers.

All the time is because of the PMTU trouble. For the server it seems as
if the packet has disappeared, and after a while, BIND and unbound
attempt to use smaller packets. Where BIND does EDNS at 512 (and thus TCP
and it works), Unbound does not implement EDNS at 512 (it is against
standard and people oppose it) and thus turns off EDNS altogether, gets
the response but without DNSSEC information, and thus returns SERVFAIL
because it fails validation.

Yes, because of the different probe.

It is not really possible for unbound to probe the PMTU trouble
everywhere; it is not DNS-OARC. If you really have to you can configure
a workaround, the edns-size in unbound.conf to 1280 or so and then you
have less PMTU trouble. It is better for the internet if you fix the
PMTU trouble (on your firewall, or from your provider).
