unbound and ntp in FreeBSD 10 Beta 3

I just did a fresh install of FreeBSD 10 Beta 3 on a clean machine. For whatever reason, I am having the following problem.

I added this to the rc.conf file:


I also have:


in the file.

This is the resolv.conf file:

#Generated by resolvconf

options edns0

Now, with this configuration, ntpd never resolves any of the addresses it needs to work. My screen fills up with error messages. If I uncomment the three nameserver entries it works fine until the next reboot. I had to comment out the unbound line in the rc.conf file to prevent it from causing the resolv.conf file from being over written

I obviously have something configured incorrectly. Can anyone help me with this? Also, what do the "options" mean? I cannot find any documentation on it.
