It seems some people use contructs like:
localhost.domain.tld. IN CNAME localhost.
When asked of unbound, it seems unbound delivers a response that is not an NXDOMAIN
for the localhost. TLD. I guess this is by design, perhaps to avoid more crap from
hitting the root name servers.
However, unbound's answer is:
;; ANSWER SECTION:
localhost. 10800 IN A 127.0.0.1
If you are going to return data for localhost, I guess it should also return a AAAA for ::1
