Not sure why prefetch option does not work for you without enabling serve-expired. How did you test the prefetch option?
From the manual page:
prefetch: <yes or no>
If yes, message cache elements are prefetched before they expire to keep the cache up to date. Turning it on gives about 10 percent more traffic and load on the machine, but popular items do not expire from the cache.
Prefetch causes active queried cached items to be prefetched when they are at 10% of their TTL. If the cache item is not queried during this time, the item will expire.
For serve-expired feature, there are two alternatives available, see the documentation: https://unbound.docs.nlnetlabs.nl/en/latest/topics/core/serve-stale.html
