if you're answering without recursion (either it's off or disallowed for
this client in this view), then you'll get NXDOMAIN if you serve the QNAME
or any superdomain of the QNAME (for example, if you have a root zone
defined), otherwise you'll get REFUSED or SERVFAIL depending on the age
of the server.
