Hi Mark!

I've just checked on my laptop: It's also 10.2. I added your override,
did a systemctl daemon-reload, and commented the do-ipv6: no statement
from Unbound's configuration. Then I restarted unbound. And I got
"SERVFAIL" immediately, on everything. Conversely, explicitly disabling
IPv6 and restarting Unbound made resolution work again, immediately, and
on the same names where resolution failed before.

I think this is a problem with at least Debian's version of Unbound
