Indeed, I downloaded 263kB to see that the keyserver is,
which doesn't even have an IPv6 address.  If you actually want to
connect and retrieve keys via IPv6, try this keyserver:     11h57m4s IN CNAME  57m9s IN AAAA   2001:1418:13:10::1

(which is SKS behind an Apache proxy (non-caching).)

These have AAAA records, but don't offer HKP via IPv6, IIRC:     1H IN CNAME           2D IN AAAA      2001:610:1108:5011:207:e9ff:fe14:b498     20M IN AAAA     2001:858:10f::1
