Why not run your own nameserver if it is your website assuming you own 
the domain?

Out of curiosity, what are the options you need to use to properly 
enable bind for IPv6? To me it appears there isn't that much to it, it 
almost works out of the box with 1 or 2 things turned on. Then you just 
add the appropriate zone files or records. Am I missing something 
blatantly obvious that will break it?

How would you apply this command to determine correct IPv6 resolving?
