Ownership might not be enough. Give us an ls -l
/etc/unbound/unboundLog.txt, also an ls -ld /var/log.

(use-syslog: no *should* be unnecessary, but I also fought with the same
issue and have it in my now working config. Also, log-queries parameter
is duplicated in your conf.)

And, stupid question: Did you restart?
