Specify NXDOMAIN instead of 0.0.0.0

I've recently learned from the pihole users that when you use littlesnitch returning 0.0.0.0 leads to slowdowns. The fix with nextdns right now is to return a html web page which helps, but is there a way to change the DNS result like on the pihole?

  • There was this possibility to choose 0.0.0.0, NXDOMAIN and one more choice when NextDNS launched but was later removed. Maybe NextDNS team know why?!

  • Also curious about this - I've noticed that some apps which used to fail the ad display immediately on the pihole's NXDOMAIN now spins for 30+ seconds before timing out on nextdns's 0.0.0.0

    NextDNS team, any chance of bringing back the ability to return NXDOMAIN instead of 0.0.0.0?

  • I sent Apple feedback about this and they replied it was fixed in macOS 12 beta. I haven't installed the beta yet to check.
