Depends on how it's implemented.  I would reuse the QTYPE for the
probing.  If it's implemented with NS-based probing, sure, things
would break in horrible ways.  But there are other interoperability
issues with NS-based probing because it's such an untested features
for most authoritative server implementations (beyond the major
general-purpose ones).
