Which AS? On AS 3320, I indeed see NXDOMAIN rewriting. But a majority
of RIPE Atlas probes (may be most of them are in proper networks, with
their own resolvers) see the honest answer:

% atlas-resolve -r 100 --as 3320 gwfhjdsyfhdsfgsyjfgshgfghqf56546FDRRFG.com
[] : 1 occurrences 
[] : 22 occurrences 
[ERROR: NXDOMAIN] : 75 occurrences
