I knowingly make request to a non-existent IP address, to find why my server
crashed when making Asynchronous request to non-existent IP address. So I
can handle the error and fix this. But if the Asynchronous request not
giving any output as expected how the error handles ?

Anyway, I did it because application developers can give the URLs with
non-existent IP address when they test their codes. But IVR core with the
XML Server should not crash when this happens. Also I believe that we should
reply them with any error (such as non_existent_ip, invalid_ip ... etc)

Thanks,
