[Unbound-users] SERVFAIL on available servers

I have a permanent VPN between a couple sites which is not entirely
reliable, and unbound is configured with a stub zone pointing to name
servers within 192.168/16 space.
The zone is defined in my unbound.conf as: example.com. IN stub noprime:
After the VPN has been interrupted, I see SERVFAIL from unbound for all
queries, despite the fact that the VPN is now available and I can query
the DNS servers across the VPN directly. If I wait, it will resolve
itself eventually. Restarting unbound resolves the problem immediately,
so I think it's a case of unbound caching that the NS are unresponsive
and not trying again.
How do I confirm the problem and/or what can I do to encourage unbound
to try again? Or is there a way to tell unbound to always consider the
NS responsible for this zone to be available?
