[Unbound-users] response to lame servers

Greetings unbounders,

I occasionally need to look up an A record for which one of the
authoritative nameservers is lame:

Unbound seems to accept the referral from the lame nameserver as
final, rather than trying the others:

$ ping
ping: Cannot resolve "" (No address associated with name)

Is that intentional?  Maybe I'm misunderstanding the behavior.
