Have any of you opened an ISC BIND bug?

I think the bug is that host and dig fail to read the scope on the
link-local address. (This is a bug in the BIND lwres resolv.conf
parser which dig and host use.)

I think most libc resolvers handle them correctly. Your milage will
obviously vary with other code. For example, ldns also fails to handle
scoped IPv6 addresses.

Tyne, West Dogger: Variable 3 or 4, becoming southerly 4 or 5 later. Slight.
