Bah, I just didn't know. :D I suspected though, which is why I
mentioned typing interactively as a fallback.

What version is it? Is there a newer version available?
gpg-connect-agent --dirmngr "GETINFO version" /bye
There have been a bunch of fixes for various DNS issues with dirmngr, I
would expect to see something showing that it's a pool.
You're talking to zimmermann.mayfirst.org, which works fine; I just
overrode DNS for the pool and made sure that
hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net only reached that IP (/etc/hosts override)
and I was able to retrieve a key fine, after which:
> KEYSERVER --hosttable
S # hosttable (idx, ipv6, ipv4, dead, name, time):
S # 0 hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
S # . hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
S # . --> 1*
S # 1 4 184.108.40.206 (hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net)
I suspect that you have an old dirmngr and the problems are fixed with a
newer release of gpg4win.
