Correct, but this IS a good point. 

And, i think i understand where this is coming from. ( helps that im dutch also ). 
Dutch Internet provider Ziggo is deploying routers that have only IPv6 configured for the lan segements. 
and IPv6 routings are more inteligent then IPv4.. 

I suggest, configure the AD-DC for both IPv4 and IPv6.

@Rowland, its something we really should think about. 
Maybe i'll do a setup also with only IPv6 configured. 

I'll think about it. (since its more work and im behind...)
