No.  djbdns 1.05 supports AAAA records as anyone can verify.  To make
sure myself I just downloaded stock djbdns from the website,
installed, and ran some aaaa queries.  Works as it always has.

$ dig aaaa +short

That's an unpatched, stock dnscache.  John Levine already described in
this thread how tinydns supports AAAA records, so there's no point going
over it again.

I only responded to this thread to correct misinformation.  sigh

As an aside, you may want to fix your DNS, as some mail receivers don't
like this:

$ dig -x +short
$ dig a +short
