Dual-stack BIND resolver behaviour

Hi folks,

We are looking to dual-stack our 9.7.3 DNS resolvers and I had a
question about BIND's behaviour in a dual-stack configuration.

Assuming the resolver's cache is empty, will a query that arrives on
an IPv6 socket always result in an outgoing query to a root server's
IPv6 address? I have the same question for IPv4 queries.
