If I understand your questions correctly. I think you misunderstood unbound' 
Unbound, altho it runs as a service, is more a Client. Much the same as your
web browser is a web client, not a web server. It searches and looks at web 
It doesn't create or serve them. It's much the same with Unbound. While you 
technically dump the query chain from the query log to a zone file. It's not 
intent to this sort of thing. What you're asking about is more the function 
of an
authoritative name server, not a recursive server (client).
