could somebody point me to an authoritative source of what should be the
behavior of a name server, when it gets a query for a record in a zone
it is authoritative for, but the data type is unknown. To be more
specific, what kind of answer should you expect sending a query of type
AAAA, to a server which is not configured with any AAAA type data, but it
has some other, let's say CNAME or NS data for the record you are quering
for. An RFC number would be great.
