There is no error message, the question is how to assign an IPV6 address to a domain name ( in this case a nameserver) that is owned by 'nobody' as the tool in WHM will only do this for account names
I'm unable to reproduce this error message when assigning an IPv6 address to a name server with a domain name that's not associated with an account. Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here and we will update this thread with the outcome.

Thank you.

Thank you.
How did you do it then? the tool in WHM>>>>Assign IPV6 address only offers you to "select an account" not a domain name, so how did you do it using this tool? See attached pic

Hello,

You should use the "Configure Address Records" option under the Nameservers section in:

"WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic WebHost Manager® Setup"

Thank you.

I had an IPV6 for one of my DNS and it was a real nightmare. I don't suggest to do that..... the web is not ready to use these
IPv6... If you want nightmare... ok if you prefer peace, buy a new IP to your webhost...

@cPanelMichael Thanks.
@vivyrelax
Some clients are already on IPv6 only networks and some others insist on IPV6 address. It does work if configured correctly.
With regard to my original question, unless your DNS servers are accessible over IPv6, users (or more specifically, their DNS resolvers) will still need to use IPv4 in order to find your site in the first place. To avoid this, you need to ensure that your nameservers have IPv6 addresses.
