Interesting.  I did wonder whether disabling IPv6 in the Windows DNS
server was possible---it was going to be something I looked at, but I
stopped investigating once I found a workaround.

Thanks for the information and examples.

Thanks for the information.  The problem I originally described, of
course, is unrelated to these nameservers.  I never made it quite
clear enough in my original post, but the trouble I was having was
with an internal view of our domain namespace.  I'll let Chariot know
their nameservers are broken.
