Hi,

It seems some people use contructs like:

localhost.domain.tld. IN CNAME localhost.

When asked of unbound, it seems unbound delivers a response that is not an NXDOMAIN
for the localhost. TLD. I guess this is by design, perhaps to avoid more crap from
hitting the root name servers.

However, unbound's answer is:

;; ANSWER SECTION:
localhost.		10800	IN	A	127.0.0.1

If you are going to return data for localhost, I guess it should also return a AAAA for ::1
