NextDNS IPv4 servers give closer Youtube.com vs ipv6 servers

Here is my report. https://nextdns.io/diag/2851f410-66eb-11ec-9f59-d74705d8f4a9

I'm running the cli client on my opnsense router.

I verified by doing a nslookup straight to the servers.


On the IPV4 servers attached to my account with my correct IP I get these results.

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: youtube.com
Addresses:  2607:f8b0:4007:809::200e


On the IPV6 servers I get this for a result

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: youtube.com
Addresses:  2607:f8b0:4009:814::200e


I'm in Southern California. The addresses from the IPv4 dns server gives me a ping under 6ms average. The address from the ipv6 nextdns server gives me about 55ms ping. 

I have everything turned on under the performance section in my account.

  • Not sure if anything changed but I'm getting the same resuls on ipv4 and ipv6 servers now. So down to 5ms pings to Youtube on both.

  • And it's back to giving me the further Youtube server.
