         IPv6 Router Advertisement Options for DNS Configuration


   This document specifies IPv6 Router Advertisement (RA) options    (called "DNS RA options") to allow IPv6 routers to advertise a list    of DNS Recursive Server Addresses and a DNS Search List to IPv6    hosts.

   This document, which obsoletes RFC 6106, defines a higher default    value of the lifetime of the DNS RA options to reduce the likelihood    of expiry of the options on links with a relatively high rate of    packet loss.
