these errors are the rcodes from the DNS messages. In NSD we currently
have, dns.h:

/* Possible RCODE values */
#define RCODE_OK                0       /* No error condition */
#define RCODE_FORMAT            1       /* Format error */
#define RCODE_SERVFAIL          2       /* Server failure */
#define RCODE_NXDOMAIN          3       /* Name Error */
#define RCODE_IMPL              4       /* Not implemented */
#define RCODE_REFUSE            5       /* Refused */
#define RCODE_NOTAUTH           9       /* Not authorized */

It might help if some extra text is printed.
