Just a quick hint: it was possible to see something was in front of NSD
becuase your drill output contained "flags: [...] ra". Since NSD is
authoritative only it should never set the Recursion Available bit.

You could try running unbound-host with your configuration file:
unbound-host -v -dd -C /path/to/unbound.conf

The -dd will result in very detailed output showing what the unbound
code is doing. You may get by with less debug as well.
