printf '\x' exit status is 0

(on my debian system, bashbug reports for bash 2.05)

printf status is 0 but /usr/bin/printf is 1.  Is this the expected behavior?

address@hidden:~$ bash3
address@hidden:~$ bash3 --version
GNU bash, version 3.00.16(1)-release (i386-pc-linux-gnu)

address@hidden:~$ printf '\x'
bash3: printf: missing hex digit for \x
address@hidden:~$ echo $?
0
address@hidden:~$ /usr/bin/printf '\x'
/usr/bin/printf: missing hexadecimal number in escape
address@hidden:~$ echo $?
1
