If you put the -4 after the "server", it does both the KE and NTP using -4.

Is there a reason you need to do KE over one and NTP over the other?


Implementation details:

The parser sets things up with IF_UNSPEC, IF_INET, or IF_INET6 and a name.  
Those get passed to getaddrinfo  (the name gets checked for :port, default is 
123)  It uses the first answer for KE, ignoring any others.

The KE processing step starts with the same address, port 123.  If it gets 
host or port info via KE, they get merged in.  If the host info is a name 
rather than IP Address, it gets looked up and the first answer is used.  The 
final address is passed to the main NTP processing using the same path as the 
answer from a DNS lookup.


Just curious.  What sort of setup are you using where IPv6 is significantly 
better than IPv4?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
