This simple config excerpt should be used as a basis for a Tier 2 Unbound installation:

server:
    access-control: 0.0.0.0/0 allow
    hide-identity: yes
    hide-trustanchor: yes
    hide-version: yes
    interface: x.x.x.x
    minimal-responses: yes
    log-queries: no
    root-hints: "/usr/local/etc/unbound/opennic.cache"
    
    # ratelimiting examples
    ip-ratelimit-factor: 0
    ip-ratelimit: 20
    ratelimit-below-domain: gov 30
    ratelimit: 100

    # See https://nlnetlabs.nl/documentation/unbound/howto-optimise/
    num-threads: 1
    infra-cache-slabs: 1
    key-cache-slabs: 1
    msg-cache-slabs: 1
    rrset-cache-slabs: 1
    key-cache-size: 8m # default 4m
    msg-cache-size: 8m # default 4m
    neg-cache-size: 8m # default 1m
    rrset-cache-size: 16m # rrset=msg*2 # default 4m
    outgoing-range: 8192
    num-queries-per-thread: 4096 # outgoing-range/2

    local-zone: example. static
    local-zone: local. static
    local-zone: i2p. static
    local-zone: home. static
    local-zone: zghjccbob3n0. static
    local-zone: dhcp. static
    local-zone: lan. static
    # etc...

The above is by no means complete as there are many other options available. The important part for OpenNIC is the reference to the root-hints file which can be populated like this:

/usr/local/bin/dig . NS @75.127.96.89 > /usr/local/etc/unbound/opennic.cache

and should look something like this:

; <<>> DiG 9.12.4 <<>> . NS @75.127.96.89
