unbound.conf(5) says:

       local-data: "<resource record string>"

            If  you  need more complicated authoritative data, with referrals,
            wildcards, CNAME/DNAME support, or DNSSEC  authoritative  service,
            setup  a  stub-zone  for  it  as detailed in the stub zone section
