The DNS server sometimes fails to return 0.0.0.0 to blocked domains

I have set up my Wi-Fi router to use NextDNS as my DNS server, and I have configured NextDNS to block all Apple domains (i.e. apple.com, icloud.com).

However, The NextDNS server occasionally fails to return 0.0.0.0 for queries to these domains. Is there anyone experiencing the same issue?

I have a Wireshark packet log file but I prefer not to make it publicly available because it may contain sensitive information.

Environment: macOS Monterey 12.0.1
MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1, 2020)
Aterm WG600HP

Thanks.

      User Nonsense. Since macOS Big Sur 11.2,  Apple apps are compatible with VPN apps and will no longer be able to bypass firewalls and other security tools. Using badness enumeration don't work anyway so software firewalls are useless.

      Read also Apple's privacy docs instead of random blogs. Apple devices and software provide the best security and privacy you can get.

      DynamicNotSlow Scientific research shows that iPhone devices send a large amount of sensitive information to Apple, even if the user explicitly opts out of it. https://www.scss.tcd.ie/doug.leith/apple_google.pdf

      User doesn’t matter. Every device send data as that’s how they work. Using connections doesn’t mean they are used to send data.  Stop spreading FUD. 
       

      Again, read Apple‘s docs and you will see that you can Opt-Out and even need to Opt-In to their services. 
       

      Anyway this isn’t a NextDNS issue so it can be closed @nextdns team.

      DynamicNotSlow If you actually did, then it's not clear to me how you make claims like "you can Opt-Out and even need to Opt-In to their services."

      Since you have not provided the basis for your claims, it is impossible to know how you defend them and thus impossible to respond to them. However, it also means that your claims need not be taken seriously. Anybody can *say* I'm spreading misinformation. The challenge is to defend that claim, and you have not risen up to the challenge.

      User if you just start reading Apple documentation instead of random „Anti“-cherry picking then you would agree. But it looks like you trust these random guys more than the company from which your OS is. Doesn’t make any sense but that’s sadly the case on many places - mostly on Reddit or other „privacy“ communities. 
       

      Do what you want, cripple down your system to a unstable and insecure state. I’m done here.

      DynamicNotSlow I am not to be accused of engaging in cherry picking because I accept and reject views based on scientific evidences. The paper I cited is from a reputable and widely trusted research institution (Trinity College Dublin), and if there is a methodological flaw in that paper, you can publicly point it out and we can have a discussion about it.

      It remains to be seen whether the same could be said of you, or whether you are only interested in "grandstanding."
