Description (partial)

DNS returns a synthesized wildcard response instead of a NO DATA response (rcode=NOERROR, empty answer section).

The query name does match the wildcard record but an empty non-terminal record is a closer enclosure. As per RFC 4592, when an empty non-terminal is a closer enclosure, the DNS server should return a NO DATA response.
