Looks like a bug in libSystem, see mdns_addrinfo in <>. Its handling of AI_NUMERICSERV doesn't match that of si_getaddrinfo.c at the same location.

I'll file a bug with Apple, anyone running into this problem migh want to do so as well (Apple's tracker is more or less a popularity contest, the more an issue is report, the more likely it is to get fixed).

I'm in favor of working around this bug on OSX by settings the servname to "0" when AI_NUMERICSERVICE is set and the passed in service name is None. I\m working on a patch.
