resolving .org - connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Dear unbound-team,

i have unbound on my openwrt router. everything works fine but i had 2
times a strange issue. everytime i did try to "dig" i got a
reply: connection timed out; no servers could be reached.

i tried to resolve diverse .org domains and for a few minutes it was not
possible while non .org domains resolved without a problem. after
~15minutes the issue was gone and i could resolve also the .org domains
without changing anything on my setup.

what does the message "no servers could be reached" mean?
does it mean that my client in the local network could not reach the router
with unbound?
or does it mean that unbound on router was reached but unbound could not
reach/get response from root DNS servers?

Yours Faithfully
