How to set up unbound on FreeBSD 10

as I can see there is a new default dns server shipping with FreeBSD 10:

When I try to set it up as described in

by typing

# echo local_unbound_enable=yes >>/etc/rc.conf
# service local_unbound start

I am locked out of my internet connection and nobody is served any dns .
So I guess something must be missing.
For example: Do I have to mount any devfs ?

My machine has got two nics: one unconfigured to dial in to an ADSL
connection via DSL bridge and one with IP to my LAN.

With old named/bind all I need to set is

in /etc/rc.conf and

        listen-on       {;
in /var/named/etc/namedb/named.conf

Thanks for your help
