This looks fine.

Thanks for checking. I think this is due to the chroot and /dev/log not
being available from inside the chroot. A symbolic link from
/my_chroot/dev/log to /dev/log may work.
(unless the syslog service you are using works differently).

Unbound is probably trying to log the errors when calling syslog...
unbound -d starts unbound attached to the console, and may show more info.

Best regards,
