Hi, Shumon:

Do you mean that Unbound will accept such answers from servers, or that
it will send such answers to clients, or both?

I just tried querying an Unbound 1.5.2 server for a cached, signed pair
of A/AAAA records and I don't believe Unbound sends such answers to
clients, at least not by default.
