AFAIK, (some versions of) glibc cope, but whinge.
My domestic router is a hulk PC running good ol' Fedora Core 3.
It makes log noise whenever I reach it from my domestic /48. Thus:

188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.0.0.2.ip6.arpa IN PTR", got type "39"
It then seems to pick up the CNAME and use that.
I don't know about MS stubs.
