Getting SSL errors passing traffic through DNS proxy using stunnel

My server is running stunnel and using an SSL cert from Let’s Encrypt. On my client PC when I try to pass traffic to the server through stunnel, I am getting the following error:

Service [TEST] accepted connection from
s_connect: connected
Service [TEST] connected remote server from 128.x.x.x:51043
CERT: Pre-verification error: unable to get local issuer certificate
Rejected by CERT at depth=1: C=US, O=“Cloudflare, Inc.”, CN=Cloudflare Inc ECC CA-3
SSL_connect: ssl/statem/statem_clnt.c:1882: error:0A000086:SSL routines::certificate verify failed
Connection reset: 0 byte(s) sent to TLS, 0 byte(s) sent to socket

This only happens when I have Cloudflare’s DNS proxy enabled. When I turn it off everything flows as expected, but I want to be able to keep it on. Can anyone help me figure out what my problem is?
