[Unbound-users] forward zone order

I've got some forward zones forwarding to both a local rbldnsd on a
different port, as well as a remote server that's a backup. I had
expected that the behavior would be to prefer the first in the list,
however, from a couple things I noticed today, I'm not so sure.

My config is as follows:

forward-zone:
        name: "zen.spamhaus.org"
        forward-addr: 127.0.0.1 at 3768
        forward-addr: 131.215.239.55

My questions are:
a) Will this config always prefer the first entry?
b) If not, is there a way to make it prefer the first entry?

TIA
