I hate to disagree with my esteemed colleague, :) however I think in the
case where the name server does not return an error (such as servfail or
nxdomain) the proper response for getaddrinfo() is EAI_NONAME. The
https://lists.isc.org/pipermail/bind-users/2011-April/083542.html has a
good discussion about why.
Nothin' ever doesn't change, but nothin' changes much.
