Note that we monitor probably just a very small fraction of Akamai's dual-stacked sites, so why some sites "lose" their AAAA is a mystery to me.  They have a relatively short TTL, backend issues can get exposed pretty quickly.

We indeed just resolved an issue wherein we mistakenly answered noanswer/noerror for AAAA requests on some of our dual-stacked sites from some of our authorities starting yesterday the 24th at 21:00 UTC and ending today, the 25th, at 04:15 UTC.  We did not have any issue returning A records during the timeframe and believe that recursives were able to resolve a corresponding A record for these dual-stacked sites throughout.
