Beware of the limitation, that it just lists the IPs of the site
named in the URL, with IPv6 preferred over IPv4 - but not indicating
which address was really used to fetch content. So you might see an IPv6
address there, but fallback to IPv4 has happened.

The only real info is "does this host in the URL have an AAAA RR" :-)
