 From the "how to join the 6bone" web page:


You will need a nameserver that supports IPv6 AAAA records. The IPv6 DNS 
Setup web pages, written/maintained by Yuji Sekiya (ISI) and Bertrand 
Buclin (AT&T Labs Europe), shows how to setup for IPv6 in an existing IPv4 
DNS server. Note that you will need a secondary that also supports AAAA 


Reverse mappings for IPv6 are done under the ip6.int delegation. Contact 
Bill Manning at bmanning@isi.edu as he is responsible for setting it up. 
Also, see Bill's comments on this.
