Mark, thanks again, I think one last set of questions...
If I use the method of
Alternatively do "dig ns parent.zone", then
"dig +norec ns child.zone @parent-server".
When I get the parent.zone, I will get back all the NS's for the
parent. Is it correct, in order to not have this be an an issue when
I use @parent-server, I need to make sure that @parent-server also
does not return IPv6? So just look for A's, and ignore AAAA's ?
Would this only tide me over until IPv4 is no longer user, or will
there always be an IPv4 address moving forward?
I would like to simply build dig with a working version; you used
9.3.6-P1. I downloaded 9.3.6-P1, ran configure and make, which built
out dig on OS X 10.5.
$./dig customtruckgraphics.us NS +trace -4 or -6 @188.8.131.52 +short
./dig: can't find IPv6 networking
To show I am using the correct version, yet I still get a failure on
the IPv6 hit.
$./dig customtruckgraphics.us NS +trace -4 @184.108.40.206

The simplest thing for me would be to build dig out on another machine
of the same architecture, and copy it over, calling it explicitly. I
can not get that plan to work though.
