DNS failing only on specific VPN

For the last week or so I have been unable to make DNS requests through my normal vpn(Mullvad). I have been going crazy trying to fix this and I think I have pinpointed the problem to the VPN itself. For a little background I am currently using unbound on my pfsense box. I have setup unbound to send all requests through my VPN_WAN. I have setup a little table of things I have tried and their corresponding results.

Gateway DNS Server Results
VPN_Mullvad Unbound SERVFAIL
VPN_Mullvad a.root-servers.net NOERROR
VPN_PIA a.root-servers.net NOERROR

From this I have to infer that something is wrong on Mullvad’s end. I have contacted their support and they have repeatedly said that the issue is not on their end. Does anyone thoughts on why this issue is occurring? Could it have something to due with my ISP? I am really not an expert when it comes to DNS so any troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated.

SRV record on afraid.org not working

I’m relatively new to working with DNS so forgive my noobishness.

I’m trying to get an SRV record subdomain work on afraid.org

Here’s what I have in the settings:

Record Type: SRV

Subdomain: _ombi._tcp.requests.xxxxxxxx.cc

Domain: xxxxxxxx.cc

Destination: 10 0 3957 requests.xxxxxxxx.cc

I’ve tried various different combinations of settings. I’ve removed the .cc from the subdomain, as I’ve seen some do. I’ve changed the priority from 0 to 10, etc.

For some reason, nothing I’m doing is resulting in a resolvable domain name.
