I'm kinda curious, when specifically talking about non-authoritative,
recursive, caching name server/resolver, what advantages does bind have,
over unbound? The nsd and unbound were developed by the same people,
whether you use nsd or bind as the authoritative name server is really
up to you and I'm in no way suggesting to replace one or the other.
What many people are doing are replacing bind with unbound for
recursive DNS queries, because many stub resolvers don't support
advanced features like DNSSEC and DoT.
