[Unbound-users] response to lame servers

Greetings unbounders,

I occasionally need to look up an A record for which one of the
authoritative nameservers is lame:  mail.opusnet.com

Unbound seems to accept the referral from the lame nameserver as
final, rather than trying the others:

$ ping mail.opusnet.com
ping: Cannot resolve "mail.opusnet.com" (No address associated with name)

Is that intentional?  Maybe I'm misunderstanding the behavior.

Thanks,

Richard.
