Reading that issue it seems that the servers in question return
cached non-authoritative data even when the request has RD=0,
provided some recent RD=1 query brings the data into the cache.

In which case the issue is not *failing* to set AA=1, but rather
a server that is authoritative for some domains and recursive for
others allowing non-authoritative cached data to leak into RD=0

How common are such servers?  Is their behaviour incorrect?
