The second and third lines in host are for the ipv6 address (AAAA
record) and the mail server (MX record). These fail with a timeout.
It is likely that the authority server for these domains does not
respond to AAAA and MX records and unbound copies this to you. If the
authority for these domains answers for AAAA and MX, even if that is
an empty packet without an answer, then you would not get a timeout here.

It should be able to get the ipv4 address, not sure why it fails.
