Only for specific hostnames using the local-data keyword (or unbound-remote
command).

	If you need more complicated authoritative data,  with  referrals,
	wildcards,  CNAME/DNAME  support, or DNSSEC authoritative service,
	setup a stub-zone for it as detailed  in  the  stub  zone  section
	below.

Though it might be an idea for a feature. Though then the question raises,
what to do with a DNSSEC secured nxdomain?
