If you want to know if your resolver talks IPv6 to the world and
supports 4096 EDNS UDP messages the following query will tell you.
dig edns-v6-ok.isc.org txt
Similarly for IPv4.
dig edns-v4-ok.isc.org txt
Both PowerDNS recursor 3.3 and Nominum CNS 3.0.5 have problems
with these queries. They both get the TC answer from 188.8.131.52 /
- CNS tries with 4000 EDNS UDP size (4000 is the CNS documented max
UDP size), gets another TC.
- PowerDNS doesn't try to used EDNS at all.
Then they both try TCP and get a RST. And then they return SERVFAIL.
