You did not say in what way it "does not work". I installed the
configuration in my Unbound and what I can see:

1) Data is correctly served:

% dig CNAME www.example.net   
...
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
...
;; ANSWER SECTION:
www.example.net.        86400   IN      CNAME   example.net.

2) CNAME is not followed:

% dig A www.example.net
...
;; flags: qr aa rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0
...
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
example.net.            86400   IN      SOA     ns1.hostingcompany.com. hostmaster.hostingcompany.com. 2008052201 28800 7200 604800 86400

Is it what you observe?
