IPv6 for Solaris DNS

I have Bind running on a Solaris box that is our main public DNS. Given my very limited knowledge on DNS, I changed a few of the zones in the DNS to be 'dual-stack'. I did it through Webmin, but I know that I can also do it by adding an AAAA-record to the zone file.

My question is how can I make the IP of the DNS server itself to be dual-stack (i.e. give it an IPv6). I'm not talking about an IP for the Solaris box itself, I'm talking about the public IP (the one that's seen from the internet, if that makes any sense)?

I know this sounds like a total noob question, but I don't even know how/where to search for this information. I'm not a DNS nor a Solaris admin, but I'm taking care of it sense the main admin is in vacation.

Thanks

Have you looked at Enable IPv6 in Oracle Solaris?

I don't think that would help. This is about Solaris IPv6. I'm looking for Bind IPv6 configuration on Solaris.

Ok found it. This record is at the DNS that is authoratative to us
