AFAIK, neither Unbound nor NSD have the facilities to accept dynamic
updates. You would need to use BIND (in packages) instead of the DNS
servers in base if that is necessary for you.
If desired you can create static entries in DNS for particular systems
and have DHCP lookup the address to assign (based on criteria such as
MAC address).
