As an example:
I set this in my conf file:
   local-zone: "" redirect
   local-data: " A"

   name: "."
   forward-first: no

But I experience this today:
 A domain, say, has a CNAME, I thought unbound would return, but it abnormally returned the real ip address (for example of, which must come from or If I try itself, unbound returns

Why? Will another domain's CNAME override my local-zone redirect configuration?

Thanks very much for help.

Sincerely, Alex from China
