It sends EDNS queries unless it has a reason not to.
60-70% of the worlds nameservers process EDNS queries
today. Of those that don't most correctly implement
RFC 1034 and return FORMERR. Then there are a few that
return SERVFAIL, NOTIMP or just ignore the OPT record and
send back a plain DNS answer to a EDNS query. Then there
are those servers that just drop EDNS queries. FORMERR and
NOTIMP are cachable indications of not understanding EDNS.
Named falls back to DNS on all the error conditions above.
