This is how I will proceed. I will alter the SAMBA_INTERNAL dns_forwarder
test to have an IPv6 server listening on port 54 for the second forwarder
in that test suite. However this does not cover off the case where the
second server is an IPv6 only address with out square brackets, no port
number given, defaulting to port 53, but will test the code.
testparm support is another issue. Have not written code for that as it
does not look at the dns forwarder addresses given.
Patch for new feature is attached. Just subscribing to Samba bugzilla so I
can log a bug for implementing this feature in master.
