You are testing nothing, unless you can control forwarder up level DNS cache
and you flush cache after each test.

What could have happened is that first run using Unbound filled
uplevel DNS server
cache and when you tested Bind it just reused those entries.

Disable all forwarders and try it again. (And it won't hurt if you
could put your testing
config files online and send a link here...)
