That shouldn't happen.  OpenBSD's /etc/rc doesn't start unbound and ntpd
until after /etc/netstart, which configures your network interfaces.
The order is roughly pf (stub ruleset) - netstart - pf (real ruleset) -
early daemons (including unbound and ntpd) - ipsec - rpc, nis and nfs -
everything else.
