Obviously your machine *is* setup for IPv6,  it's just not configured,
named sees the capability, so tries it. 

I bet ifconfig shows it,   below is an example from this pc which does
not use IPv6... 

inet netmask
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 scopeid 0x10<host> 

probably eth0 does as well 

  inet6 fe80::e2cb:4eff:feda:9842 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x20<link> 

You might also want to read up on  gai.conf  and set some precedence's,
I dont use it, but on slackware I dont have the problems you have, it
might help - I recall having to use it well over 10 years ago on a few
centos servers we inherited at the time.
