RFC 7707, "Network Reconnaissance in IPv6 Networks", March 2016

Source of RFC: opsec (ops)

Errata ID: 5175
Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Reported By: Kevin Tyers

Section 5.1.4. says:

the response would
   contain an RCODE of 0 (no error).  Otherwise, the response would
   contain an RCODE of 4 (NXDOMAIN).

It should say:

the response would
   contain an RCODE of 0 (no error).  Otherwise, the response would
   contain an RCODE of 3 (NXDOMAIN).

Notes:

In RFC1035 section 4.1.1. it states that an RCODE of 3 is 'Name Error' aka NXDOMAIN. RCODE 4 is "Not Implemented". RFC 7707 incorrectly refers to NXDOMAIN as RCODE 4 instead of RCODE 3.

Here is the output of testing this in Wireshark:
.... .... .... 0011 = Reply code: No such name (3)
