dig reports a host's IPv6 address, even though the goes to the
IPv4 address. I cannot reach this host's IPv6 address as I do not have
a default route at the moment.


redback# dig ns | grep FROM
;; FROM: redback to SERVER:  2001:388:c02:4000::1:21

redback# tcpdump host and port 53
tcpdump: listening on le0
