5cf1ac2443ad0dba263559a3fe043d929e0e5c4c have happened between those.
It's possible 5cf1ac applies to your case, since it changes the error
handling to take NXDOMAIN into account from any of the queries.

AFAIK dig/drill will look at /etc/resolv.conf for nameservers, but use
their own resolver, not libc's. getent, on the other hand, uses the libc
resolver, so comparing how ssh/ping and getent perform the query might
be worthwhile, since they are all using the same resolvers.
