Description of problem:
This is strictly a feature request. The version of BIND that ships
with RHEL 3 (bind-9.2.4-EL3_10) does not support a dual-stack
IPv4/IPv6 environment. ISC addressed this issue with the release of
BIND 9.3.0. Many organizations that are planning to migrate to IPv6
first implement a dual-stack environment in order to ease the
transition and elimination of legacy IPv4-only applications and
services. It is currently impossible to implement a DNS server using
the Redhat supplied BIND rpm's in a dual-stack environment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FWIW, it seems that bind-9.2.4-EL3_10 works fine in an IPv4 only or
IPv6 only environment. The only problem is with network topologies
that incorporate a dual protocol stack.
bind-9.3.0 should be in the next RHEL-4.0 release
(or rather, the Release Candidate #1 that will be
released in December). bind-9.3.0's release last
week did not give us sufficient time for testing
to include it in the current RHEL-4.
Meanwhile, you can download it from :
and build it with:
$ rpmbuild --rebuild bind-9.3.0-1_beta.src.rpm
Then install the RPMs that will be in
