If a domain has subdomains but no resource records, PowerDNS (and, BTW, djdns), replies that the domain does not exist, which is wrong.


foobar.emptynonterminal.example.org. IN A

A query for 'ANY foobar.emptynonterminal.example.org' works, a query for ANY emptynonterminal.example.org' says NXDOMAIN which is bad.

For details, see RFC 2136.
