You mean, handle AAAA glue records?

I have a number of personal domains registered through joker.com who can
do handle this; they have various reseller interfaces which I've not
investigated in depth.

They didn't handle an NS record which _only_ has AAAA and no A; they go
for A or A+AAAA where I wanted them split as I have more confidence that
resolvers can skip unreachable servers than that they'll retry all of
the IP addresses for a given server if one address is unreachable.
Joker's support were kind enough to set this up manually for me.

See NS: ns-nl1.globnix.net.
