For consistency if we know the type we do

reply https.dns.netmeister.org is <TXT>

reply https.dns.netmeister.org is <type=65>

I've implemented that.

Patch applied. Removing the declaration for int i breaks when building
DNSSEC code, so I changed that to use the j counter variable instead.

I tagged 2.86rc3 for completeness.
