[dns-operations] DNSSEC Failure w/IPv6 PTRs?

Hi - 

I'm observing what seems to be a DNSSEC-related problem with resolving
IPv6 PTRs from DNSSEC validating servers, today.  From a box on Comcast,
here's what I'm seeing to Comcast's DNSSEC validating servers vs. a
non-DNSSEC validating server (OpenDNS):

(tachyon:16:30)% dig @75.75.75.75 -x 2600::       

; <<>> DiG 9.7.2-P3 <<>> @75.75.75.75 -x 2600::
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 985

I can replicate these problems on my own instance of BIND that's
configured to do DNSSEC validation:

(atlantis:16:35)# tail /var/log/daemon.log
May 15 16:35:53 atlantis named[19455]: validating @0x7fbb5f202800:
0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.6.2.ip6.arpa
PTR: bad cache hit (2.ip6.arpa/DS)
May 15 16:35:53 atlantis named[19455]: error (broken trust chain)
resolving
'0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.6.2.ip6.arpa/PTR/IN':
206.228.179.10#53

Are other folks experiencing these problems, or is it just me?  Not sure
when this started, but I can replicate it from a view different
locations.
