Windows Server and IPv6

We are looking to deploy Microsoft DirectAccess and as part of that we are planning to Dual Stack IPv6 on various server subnets to enable end-to-end communication between the remote users and the servers (instead of it being NAT64/DNS64)

We do not however have an IPv6 internet connection.  

Whilst I’m confident this will work well for the server/client communication, Will this not cause any issues with the DA clients trying to access the internet through the direct access tunnel? (as the DNS server will likely return a 'true' IPv6 address in the DNS response to the client).

Also, for all the servers configured with IPv6 (including the AD/DNS servers), will they have any sort of performance impact when attempting to reach public internet dual-stacked websites? i.e. as it has a global unicast address will it prefer IPv6 and try to reach it with IPv6 first?

does your internet connection support IPv6? or in other words, do you own public IPv6 addresses? if not, you really no need to deploy dual-stacked web sites.
