How do you use radvd on linux/Ubuntu to distribute IPv6 DNS server addresses?

In theory, you should use a "RDNSS definition" in radvd.conf. However, I do not know if any client actually uses that option to autoconfigure the DNS server addresses; using DHCPv6 should be more reliable.

Edit: Newer versions of NetworkManager (used by most popular Linux distributions) are able to use the RDNSS to autoconfigure the IPv6 DNS server addresses.
