The authoritative name servers for this domain do not handle EDNS
(which was specified only 23 years ago) so the resolvers that do not
fallback on EDNS (probably the majority) return a SERVFAIL.

Seen with RIPE Atlas probes:

% blaeu-resolve -r 500 --type NS mail.protection.outlook.com
[ns1-proddns.glbdns.o365filtering.com. ns2-proddns.glbdns.o365filtering.com.] : 319 occurrences 
[ERROR: SERVFAIL] : 138 occurrences 
[] : 1 occurrences
