If you have access to the C libraries or whatever is generating the lookups, it should be easy enough to edit the source or binary edit the library to look up something else that will fail quickly rather than time out. A cleaner option might be to tell your recursive name server that it is authorititive for ip6.int and give it an empty zone (this is what I do for zones that have problems with AAAA lookups). This prevents it having to time out. David.
