You left out the authority section that refers you to the correct DNS
servers - ns[1-6].hp.com are not it.  They delegate to another set of HP
servers, which all time out (as stated by the OP) when asked for AAAA.

Oddly, it seems to be specific to AAAA; any other type request I send
comes back NOERROR correctly.  It is like somebody tried to handle AAAA
"special" and screwed it up.
