An A query for an AAAA only name should return a 0 answer NOERROR (so
"there is an answer, but no value")

AAAA records are queried for SEPARATELY, as a separate rtype. If a
computer wants both records, it needs to query for them both.
If you are indeed getting NXDOMAIN and not 0-answer NOERROR I suspect
its not DNSMASQ but the upstream resolver.
