When I try this (against IPv4 servers - my IPv6 connection isn't yet
active) I get the same two IPv6 addresses for each type of question:

$ host www.debian.org | grep IPv6
www.debian.org has IPv6 address 2001:41b8:202:deb:216:35ff:fec4:6340
www.debian.org has IPv6 address 2001:858:2:2:214:22ff:fe0d:7717

$ dig +aaonly aaaa www.debian.org | grep '^www.*AAAA'
www.debian.org.   212   IN    AAAA    2001:858:2:2:214:22ff:fe0d:7717
www.debian.org.   212   IN    AAAA    2001:41b8:202:deb:216:35ff:fec4:6340
