Do you know why this is? I run unbound on my Mac, but I start it by hand
post boot (just don't ask).
How is unbound started? If it's a script (like /etc/rc.local) you could
fall back to bind, eg:
unbound || bind
so that if unbound fails its setup (hopefully before it forks off) you
can run ISC bind instead.
But it might be more profitable to identify what it is unhappy about
when it doesn't start.

I agree. And I've done that. I think I've solved the root cause. But...
I still have a single point of failure. A backup would be very handy.
