You can tell unbound about this DNSSEC secured "phantom" zone


Then you can add a trusted-key statement for internal.example.com.

unbound then knows that internal.example.com. does not exist in the "world view",
and it will override any DNSSEC proof that internal.example.com. does not exist,
and uses the local nameservers specified with the local key specified.
