We've been using two workarounds:
1. Separate DNS resolvers (both BIND 9.8; one DNS64 and the other
DNS6).  Have the client provisioning system assign the appropriate DNS
server IPs (dual-stack to anycast set 1, v6-only to anycast set 2).
2. Use range-specific views to determine whether or not to apply DNS64
(this setup isn't standard BIND, though).

One is a kludge, and the other is vendor-specific, but they work.
