???

The musl resolver should be able to handle a resolver returning NODATA.
That is popular for having a separate extranet infrastructure - your
extranet DNS only contains records for your local domain and returns
NODATA for requests outside that domain.

If you are correct that such a response "confuses musl search
processing", that's a bug in musl that needs to be fixed.

Best,
