[Unbound-users] Interesting issue

This may be something that is obvious or that is behaviour that is expected by 
Unbound.  Here's my issue.

I have two large-ish (rrset_cache set to 300MB) caches at the front of my 
network nearest the egress to the Internet.  On a WAN at a stub office (with 
WiMax towers connected) is another network, which I set up unbound on as well 
and pointed at the caches at the front of the network using:

       name: "."

The machine itself can resolve addresses using this configuration, but none of 
the systems on the network can resolve.  Taking the forward-zone out, they 
resolve perfectly.
