I believe that is currently not supported, and the functionality may
not be added. In fact, the recursor= option might be removed entirely,
because mixed auth/rec is a bad idea.

Fortunately, it should be unnecessary. You can ask for IPv6 records
while talking to the recursor over IPv4 and vice-versa. You can also
lookup records only available over IPv6 as long as the recursor has a
v6 interface; you can still send your question to the recursor over v4
in this case.

Google Public DNS doesn't support IPv6-only authoritative nameservers
at this time, but they will add that functionality when it seems
