Wouldn't it be better to simply not put in any delegation information?
That would give a quick NXDOMAIN response, instead of the resolver
having to go off and ask the root servers about "noserver", only to
find out it doesn't exist.
Granted, negative caching will mitigate this problem, but why put
unnecessary load on the root servers when it can be avoided?
Also I'm not sure how exactly a NS pointing to a non-existent RR is
handled. NXDOMAIN, or SERVFAIL?
Might have to check, just for the heck of it...

``And indeed people sometimes speak of man's "bestial" cruelty, but
this is very unfair and insulting to the beasts: a beast can never be
so cruel as a man, so ingeniously, so artistically cruel.''
(Ivan Karamazov, in Dostoyevsky's 'The Brothers Karamazov')
