Please don't make DNS servers conflict with each other. I have Dnsmasq,
Unbound and NSD all installed. Unbound provides recursive DNSSEC enabled
resolution for the local network, it forwards queries for the LAN domain to
an authoritative Dnsmasq DNS/DHCP servicer running on a different port and
NSD is running on an external interface serving an external domain. I don't
think this is an unreasonable configuration to want.
