Order of address version return

Does bind order address class on queries?  That is does it, say, group 
IPv4 addresses then IPv6?

I have put my IPv6 addresses before my IPv4 addresses in my zone file, 
but it seems that the queries are still IPv4 followed by IPv6.

Or am I reading the dumps wrong?

Definitely the resolver is returning them in this order to apps.  By 
server, I want to control which address connection is preferred. Either 
v6 then v4 or v4 then v6.

thank you
