Done. Then _restarted network connection_ and now my Unbound instance
gets asked first, via I used "dig example.com" to verify.

Right below the above "prepend" line in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf is
the "request" parameter Jean mentioned. Beautiful. I will leave that
request unchanged for now. Glad to know where it is.

Thanks for the thoughtful and very helpful replies,
