I'd be interested in the results comparing the two on a 
similar/identical platform. In other words, should I uninstall Microsoft 
DNS and install unbound on the same system (where unbound is otherwise a 
reasonable fit)

Obviously it's not a suitable replacement for Active Directory driven 
DNS. However, even here, there's an interesting performance question: Is 
it worth installing unbound and forwarding Microsoft DNS to unbound, or 
is it better to let Microsoft DNS perform it's own resolution?
