I just got bitten by a similar issue to this. If the config file specified with
-C includes use-syslog:yes then unbound-host sends it output to syslog and not
to stderr as the -d option implies. It also severely DOSes your syslog :P

I suggest unbound-host to ignore/override this setting to use-syslog:no, or to
provide an option for this.
