Strange behaviour with host(1)

Hi, I'm trying to get host working properly with ipv6 on 5.0-RELEASE-p6.

Example:

[erik_at_trinity]% uname -sr
-[~]-[11:06PM]-
FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p1
[erik_at_trinity]% host 6bone.net
-[~]-[11:06PM]-
6bone.net has address 206.123.31.124
6bone.net has address 3ffe:b00:c18:1::10
6bone.net mail is handled (pri=10) by quark.isi.edu
6bone.net mail is handled (pri=20) by darkstar.isi.edu
6bone.net mail is handled (pri=0) by venera.isi.edu

While, on my personal 5.0:

-su-2.05b# uname -sr
FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p6
-su-2.05b# host 6bone.net
6bone.net has address 206.123.31.124


Why is this happening? I've tried to change nameservers, no luck. Tried to
install bind9-base, no luck. I'm basically out of ideas. The server has IPV6
up and running. The only thing that works is if I specify -t AAAA:

-su-2.05b# host -t aaaa irc6.qeast.net
irc6.qeast.net has AAAA address 2001:510:0:13::

Erik.
