Obviously there are also recursive resolver implementations, like unbound. To
the client they look like DNS servers, too. (And you really want to use one of
them on your local machine to do the DNSSEC validation.)

Generally plain servers do not care about the key, it's just the recursive
resolvers that need it.

Alternatives don't make sense. A dedicated packages might make some.
