My understanding of Unbound is that designed as a caching nameserver, not 
an authoratative nameserver.  It's supposed to serve DNS to clients from 
another server, such as BIND or Samba's internal DNS server.  Pointing it 
to your domain's authoratative Samba/BIND9_DLZ DNS servers seems like the 
proper way to set it up to me.
