ping uses NSS (Name Service Switch) to work out what "databases" to
use for resolving, dns being one potiential database.

dig and nslookup don't use NSS but directly go to DNS, as they are DNS
tools. Also you didn't say what query type you used for them, but I
assume you're trying to find the AAAA record.

Could the resolver library not be IPv6 aware?  The unknow(sic) problem
was a while ago so maybe its an old library?  You could try tracing on
the network to see what it is trying to do.
