Troubles with 8.2.3-REL and AAAA records.

	When a query of type AAAA comes in for a record that
	only exists as an A, the server should not return
	NXDOMAIN.  It should return an empty response, containing
	only the SOA of the zone.

	This being the case, it looks like something else might
	be wrong with your setup.
