It uses the first answer it gets back from getaddrinfo

I just scanned the man page.  I didn't see anything about the order of 
returned answers.

ntpd used to know if IPv4 and/or IPv6 was supported on this system.  That 
feels like the sort of thing that Eric would have removed but I think I saw 
some of that code recently.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
