Can't dig +trace?

unbound at fongaboo.com
Tue Jul 28 15:01:47 CEST 2015


I have unbound running and clients using dig seem not to be able to trace?


dig +trace www.amiga.com

; <<>> DiG 9.6.2-P2 <<>> +trace www.amiga.com
;; global options: +cmd
;; Received 12 bytes from <MY-UNBOUND-IP>#53(MY-UNBOUND-IP) in 0 ms


However if I hit Google's lookup servers with the same command from the 
same client machine, I get the expected response...


dig +trace @8.8.8.8 www.amiga.com

drill -T www.amiga.com seems to do the job these days. I guess I am just 
mostly curious what about Unbound keeps good ol' dig +trace from working?


TIA
