The problem is that there is a brain-dead name server somewhere in

used to happen with my ISP's DNS service. By using Google, I bypass
them unless both of Google's servers are down.

Sorry, I don't understand completely.

Who has to support IPv6, the name resolver? My ISP? (it doesn't). Or do
you mean:

I ask for IP for suchname
I get back IPv4-address, IPv6-address

with the assumption that both those IPv4-address and IPv6-address work at
"suchname" - but do not? That is, "suchname" doesn't really have Ipv6. :-?

If IPv6 is enabled in your kernel, then it will work as long as the
name servers cooperate. That has been true for quite a while.

What I want, what we need, is that when I do:

I ask for IP for suchname
I get back IPv4-address

because the IPv6 address is removed from the list if I get it, so that
zypper can not try it, not knowing that it exists.

Of course, if my ISP provided an IPv6 tunnel, would be better. No such
thing, to my knowledge.
