auth-zone and forward-zone on unbound-1.7.0

While doing some experiments, I am facing an issue while mixing
auth-zone and forward-zone.
The server I was testing on was originally configured to forward
requests to other servers (mainly to benefit from their cache):
forward-addr: IP1 # redacted
forward-addr: IP2 # redacted
Then, I added auth-zone directives on order to implement RF7706:
>From this point, all responses are nodata.
Both features work separately, but not together.
I know this can be a curious config (frankly, I forgot I added the
forward-zone on this test server...) but I would have expected unbound :
- either to use the root zone local copy, then to use the forward-addr
to continue with the recursion
- or to ignore the auth-zone directives as it is configured as a simple
forwarder for the zone
Any comment on this?
