I got these warnings in my /var/log/messages:

Jun 20 01:49:41 pro named[17711]: network unreachable resolving 'pdns3.ultradns.org/A/IN': 2001:500:b::1#53

Jun 20 01:49:41 pro named[17711]: network unreachable resolving 'pdns6.ultradns.co.uk/A/IN': 2001:502:ad09::3#53

Anybody has any idea what named is trying to do?

Bind is trying to to resolve ipv6 addresses from an ipv6 server. Is your server configured with IPv6?

Doesn't seem to be enabled: modprobe -c | grep ipv6 returns nothing. –  spektom Jun 21 '11 at 15:17
    
Check the BIND configuration. Also check if you have net-pf-10 installed in your kernel as well. –  Squidly Jul 20 '11 at 5:04
