I was wondering why authoritative pdns is answering to non-existing
domains with NOERROR status while other dns servers I know (bind.
mydns) and many other I checked on the net always respond with
SERVFAIL or REFUSED. I thought I have a bug in my backend but
according to above this is correct answer for such domains.
Following OP question: isn't this answer causing troubles for domain registrars?
