Assuming:
- GRUB has an IPv4 or IPv6 address (but not both)
- We want to fetch something from example.org (e.g. (http,example.org)/linux)
- example.org is dual-stacked, i.e. has both A and AAAA DNS records

One every N fetches will fail, at random.

Easily reproducible using nslookup, where it returns either the A or the AAAA, basically at random:

grub> net_nslookup example.org
93.184.216.34
grub> net_nslookup example.org
93.184.216.34
grub> net_nslookup example.org
2606:2800:220:1:248:1893:25c8:1946
grub> net_nslookup example.org
93.184.216.34
grub> net_nslookup example.org
2606:2800:220:1:248:1893:25c8:1946
grub> net_nslookup example.org
93.184.216.34
