[Pdns-users] SERVFAIL on backend failure - is this possible?

Hi List,

While trying to implement authoritative DNS server using "remote"
backend, I've stumbled into an issue when HTTP backend is unreachable
- PowerDNS is returning NXDOMAIN.

What I would like to achieve is return SERVFAIL in case my HTTP
endpoint is unavailable. Is this possible? Maybe Lua fallback backend
could assist here?

Thanks in advance!
