Is this only a problem for Android users? I ran into a bug a couple of
times where dnsmasq simply did not reply to queries sent to IPv6
link-local addresses. I had this problem on my ERLs, it went away at
some point, then it came back, and while testing now, it seems to work
fine again. So unfortunately I have no idea why it happened, but that is
the only reason I configured a non-ULA DNS server on these devices.

It wasn't really a problem on my Linux clients, but using Android with
IPv6 DNS servers that don't reply just isn't usable, even if the IPv4
DNS servers work just fine. Each connection attempt had a ~12 second
delay or so.
