I brought up using Unbound as a cache/resolver, not as a replacement
for the internal DNS server, nor as a replacement for an external BIND
in place of the internal DNS server. It will do just fine in that
role, if not better than most, and solves the problem of desiring
multiple forwarders and keeping Samba's internal DNS intact.
