Have been using Unbound in this way for well over a year with an MS AD.
The point was the possibility, at another location, to continue to use
NSD, an authoritative server, which currently contains all the needed
DNS records except the new ones necessary to host an AD, in the same
manner BIND was used in some of given links to replace the MS DNS in
the MS AD environment.
