That is not entirely true, because bind does log a message that it is
disabling EDNS, and then gets the query out. So it could remember
that state for a little while? But currently, it appaers to not do
that, so a forwarder with broken EDNS creates havoc on a busy server
in combination with serving TTL=0 records.
