The OP was referring to the internal DNS server and forwarding to an 
external DNS server, which, as you say, you could do with unbound. The 
conversation then turned to using bind instead, at which point, you 
brought up using unbound. I do not think that you can replace, note that 
I say replace, the internal DNS server with unbound, it does not have 
the required mods to work with Samba 4, unless you know different.
