(1) Hosts with AAAA records exist in the public DNS, e.g.

dig AAAA netmon00.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk


netmon00.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk. 300 IN AAAA 2001:630:12:580:207:43ff:fe11:ffb0

(2) Hostnames can be resolved from an external IPv6 only host, i.e. local DNS server has AAAA record, e.g.

dig netmon00.grid.hep.ph.ic.ac.uk


ns0.ic.ac.uk. 86400 IN A

ns0.ic.ac.uk. 300 IN AAAA 2001:630:12:600:1::80
