Thanks, that worked.

In the end as we suspected, we found the problem wasn't with unbound - it 
was with a number of services we run that only read /etc/resolv.conf at 
startup - and hence, didn't see the change from the recursive servers to 
127.0.0.1 in resolv.conf (i.e. to use the local instance of Unbound).

Now we've restarted the services - everything works fine, even when one of 
the upstream recursive's goes offline.
