Hello,

Does Unbound support master-slave configuration? One as the primary authority name server and another as the secondary authority name server.

Thank you.

Unbound is just a forwarding or recursive DNS resolver, it has no provisions for acting as a real authoritative DNS server that could be set to allow slave servers to sync records from it.

The creators of Unbound have made an authoritative DNS server, dns/nsd.

Thank you. I am wrong.

But I am confused again. What is the local-zone configuration in server section of unbound.conf used for?

Can it also provide local queries by adding local-zone and local-data except that it doesn't seem to support referrals, wildcards, CNAME/DNAME?

They are for local overrides and local only zones, not quite the same as a true authoritative DNS server but usually close enough. Unbound can sort of pretend to be an authoritative name server if you add a SOA record to your local zone but it's then only for its local clients.
