The way I read the portion of the thread related to resolver behavoir
was that the resolver behavior was being discussed. Not the client.
The resolver should have an attribute to select the preference between
A vs. AAAA. Otherwise, it's setting network policy through code.

My question was if there is an option to adjust this, where is it? I
don't see it. I'm not a BIND uber-expert. If there is no option, there
quite possibly ought to be one.
