This documents specifies 3 well known addresses to configure stub resolvers on IPv6 nodes to enable them to communicate with recursive DNS server with minimum configuration in the network and without running a discovery protocol on the end nodes. This method may be used when no other information about the addresses of recursive DNS servers is available. Implementation of stub resolvers using this as default configuration must provide a way to override this.
