There is bug on Linux:

IPv6 enabled daemon doesn't run on non IPv6 enabled kernel, in syslog
reports:

nsd[551]: can't create a socket: Address family not supported by
protocol

I made workaround in startup script to add -4 when /proc/sys/net/ipv6/
directory doesn't exist in debian package, but this is really only
workaround, not fix.

from discussion with Colm MacCarthaigh:
