The question is not very clear to me...by "to receive a DNS query in
IPV6", do you mean you want to receive queries *only* over IPv6?
Likewise, by "forward it using IPV4 to another server", do you mean
you want to forward the query *only* over IPv4?  Also, by "forward",
do you mean forward a query to another recursive server (e.g., by
using the forwarders option), or do you mean the server acts as a
normal recursive server who sends queries to external authoritative
