ICANN SSAC and RRSAC recommend that type AAAA records for all root name servers so addressed should be included in the root hints and root zone files and that they be returned in priming responses from root name servers as soon as practically possible.

The committees jointly conclude that the most expedient way to proceed is for ICANN, IANA and the root name server operators to coordinate a phased deployment.

The document, which provides all the details and recommendations, is available at the ICANN web site.
