Yes, that is the way it is supposed to work: any attempt to access
127.0.0.1 (possibly 127.0.0.0/8 BICBW) or ::1 is remapped to the jail
address. Mostly this works fine, but some applications -- unbound(8)
being one of them -- will detect that the packet was sent to 127.0.0.1
but received on a different interface and drop the packet.
Your possible solutions are:
* Tweak the local_unbound or unbound configuration to use the jail
* Investigate VIMAGE jails, which have their own network stacks and
consequently a lo0 interface within the jail.
