Could you add the output of 'dig +norecurs -t aaaa bar.com' and 'dig
+norecurs -t aaaa foo.bar.com' and 'dig +norecurs -t any bar.com'.

Your question corresponds to this regression test:

When asking for a record/type combination which does not exist, but the
record in question does have other types available, a nameserver should
return an authoritative empty no-error packet, and NOT set NXDOMAIN.
	Passed test non-existing-record-other-types-exist

And in the release tests, this one passed. However, this test is indeed at
the apex.

So please show your 'dig' output.
