New forward zone records only on restart

Greetings,

I'm using Unbound as a recursing DNS server in our company office
infrastructure. Here is the link to my `unbound.conf` file:
https://gist.github.com/sc250024/5874948dceac674df53579c2a13d051d

The `forward-zone` entries point to two PowerDNS servers that are
authoritative for those domains listed in the configuration. Both PowerDNS
servers are using a typical MySQL backend, and they are in a Master-Slave
configuration.

I notice that when I add new records to the authoritative servers, Unbound
does not successfully resolve these records UNTIL I restart the Unbound
daemon. In other words:

`dig @10.0.32.6 somenewrecord.infra.company.com` <<-- Works since I'm
querying the authoritative server directly
`dig somenewrecord.infra.company.com` <<-- Returns a SERVFAIL until I
restart the Unbound daemon

Is this typical behavior? What am I doing wrong?
