Does nslookup do that by default?
Yes, nslookup has A as the default type. Here is nslookup handling a AAAA query: % nslookup -type=aaaa ipv4.l.google.com Server: 192.168.1.1 Address: 192.168.1.1#53 Non-authoritative answer: *** Can't find ipv4.l.google.com: No answer Authoritative answers can be found from: l.google.com origin = ns1.google.com mail addr = dns-admin.google.com serial = 192521433 refresh = 900 retry = 900 expire = 1800 minimum = 60 (If DNS64 was in place, I ought to see 74.125.24.x mapped to an IPv6 address instead-- something like 64:ff9b::74.125.24.x.)
