I did not ...

I use puppet to publish the configuration and have 60 servers dns.

is simple!

I would like to use the conf unbound as follows:

interface: External (outside is a configuration of / etc / hosts)

I tested does not work.

I wonder how will I tell the developers to add this feature if there
is a possibility. Other applications allow this configuration.

This configuration will not change the way you use the conf would be
just another option.

I'm not worried that someone will change the hosts, the puppet takes
care of that. We have the organization and standardization on our
servers. :)
