You want to send a single message to several computers simultaneously on an IPv6 network. What kind of address class should you employ?

A Multicast.

IPv6 addresses come in three types: unicast, anycast, and multicast. A single node on the network is identified with a unicast address. An anycast address is assigned to multiple nodes. Multiple hosts can utilize a multicast address. Each host on the list will receive an anycast message. A multicast message will be sent to every address on the list. IPv6 does not use broadcasts.
