[CNAME, "unknown"? Come on.]
It cannot. It would be a serious violation of RFC 3597. I quote it:
To enable new RR types to be deployed without server changes, name
servers and resolvers MUST handle RRs of unknown type
And RFC 1035 clearly says:
2 Server failure - The name server was
unable to process this query due to a
problem with the name server.
Yes, thre is "a problem for the name server" if it replies SERVFAIL.
