I'm not exactly certain what you're doing in PHP to get the address. In C, I would typically use gethostbyname(), with which it's possible to explicitly specify which address type you're looking for. From the PHP manual (http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.gethostbyname.php), it looks like you can use gethostbyname in PHP, too.
