No, more like... 

1. RFC3701 published.
2. June 6th 2006 goes by, 6bone space declared as bogons.
3. Number of network operators filter bogon space.
4. Operator of the DNS server in question continues to use address space
that's declared non-valid.

Nothing wrong with DNS, just operator of the said DNS forgetting to renumber
on time.
