Doing some IPv6 tests with dhcp-4.1.1b1 dhcpd, I try the use case where the client is requesting a delegated prefix and the server has no prefix pool. 

The server write "Unable to pick client prefix: no IPv6 prefix pools on this shared network" as expected.

The DHCP Advertise message give a "Status code (13)" : NoAddrAvail (2).
I expected : NoPrefixAvail (6).

Why not "NoPrefixAvail" ?
