After some more discussion it turned out that is a more longstanding
issue (nsd 2.3.3 has it too, and probably earlier version also).

It is also gets nasty when trying to fix this in the NSD code, so after some
thought we decided to use the following: (which fedora and debian do):

o check if a system has ipv6 in the startup script
o if ipv6 -> nsd
  if no ipv6 -> nsd -4

Note, this is something for the packagers, there is no code added
to nsdc to do this.
