Do you have an example for this?  I don't get the "no response on UDP"
part.  If the same nameserver is answering other queries on UDP, why
wouldn't at least send a REFUSED reply?

Perhaps REFUSED has been disabled somehow; that could be tested by
querying it for other non-hosted zones,

dig @<that-NS> ns
