 For domains on the Internet listed as having IPv6 capable DNS servers
 (such as cnn.com), named attempts to connect to said servers first via
 IPv6 with the XS-0.7 beta 1 build, and then fall back to IPv4.

 But when it finds out that IPv6 is not available everywhere yet {although
 it theoretically already should be available at our office, and within a
 year at my home} named complains about each failed connection, creating a
 bit of noise in /var/log/messages.

 This still happens without the updated IPv6-listing root hints file
 mentioned in #11626, although that gives it more IPv6 addresses to
 complain about.

 We may or may not want to tell named to use IPv6 at all, or somehow tell
 it to try IPv4 first.
