Verbatim output from my terminal:
$ getent hosts example.org 2001:500:88:200::10 example.org $ getent ahosts example.org 22.214.171.124 STREAM 43-10.any.icann.org 126.96.36.199 DGRAM 188.8.131.52 RAW
I thought they were both (at the very least ahosts) supposed to print both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Why are these printing different address types?

Edit: Looks like it might be related to this bug report.
