Connectivity to Resolver IP Addresses Yes Yes

2606:4700:4700::1001 No

Here is some further information. I am using a Macrunning high sierra and the traceroute to 2 ( 1.649 ms 2.070 ms 5.596 ms
3 ( 29.594 ms 24.384 ms 23.879 ms
4 ( 25.333 ms 26.427 ms 25.224 ms
5 ( 26.943 ms 26.477 ms 26.948 ms
6 ( 27.505 ms 30.899 ms 34.302 ms
7 ( 22.780 ms 20.395 ms 21.517 ms
8 ( 21.116 ms 20.544 ms 20.420 ms
9 ( 23.653 ms 20.727 ms 22.964 ms
10 ( 20.311 ms 23.107 ms 19.907 ms

The first section indicates you are not using, the second indicates you can connect to them (and thus could use them).

Correct I am not using

I solved the issue I purposely used another DNS to see the results but I misinterpreted the results when I did not see no connectivity for the IPv6 address but a result for IPv4. The IPV4 made me think it was checking the DNS value on my computer when it checks connectivity from my computer and since I have IPV6 disabled the results are correct.

Everything is correct.
