It is useragent dependent. With

lynx -useragent "Mozilla/4.0"

server returns 200. I suppose it has something to do with BrowserMatch
directives or some kind of workaround apache has cooked up for broken
clients, which unfortunately perpetuates broken stuff.

For example, see this discussion snip from postfix-devel list:

which seems sensible for a server. At the least, a webserver
workaround shouldn't break responses to a well-behaved client ;)
