The use-ipv6 configuration variable

use-ipv6 decides whether the various servers accept IPv6 connections. If use-ipv6 is disabled, DNS lookups disregard IPv6 results.

use-ipv6 is a toggle. Its default value is true on systems that support IPv6:

use-ipv6 = true

However, if an IPv6 operation fails at startup, the default is changed to false.

use-ipv6 = false

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf use-ipv6.

Toggle syntax

Toggles are written as a single word. Yes, true, on, 1, and enabled all mean that the toggle is enabled, while no, false, off, 0, and disabled unsurprisingly mean disabled. Toggles are case-insensitive.

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
