[Pdns-users] 1 sec delay before DNS-answer at pdns-recursor

Hi Shamus,

PowerDNS Recursor not listening at ::1 by default. But localhost 
resolves (/etc/hosts) to ::1 at the first try. So dig's first query 
fails. After 1 second (don't know why 1 second because default timeout 
is 3s), dig tries again at and it works.

You have 3 possibilities:

1.) Force the Recursor to listen at ::1 (--local-address=,::1)
2.) Explicitly dig IPv4 (dig @ ...)
3.) Delete ::1 from /etc/hosts
