What Would Cause "No Such Link" to Display on adCenter Click?

BrianM at Search Engine Watch Forums posted a thread explaining that some Microsoft adCenter ads in MSN Search are landing to an MSN page that has no content, outside of this html produced:

<HTML> <HEAD><TITLE>No Such Link</TITLE></HEAD> <BODY><H1>No Such Link</H1></BODY> </HTML>

Here is the example ad, but I am told there are others. Please do not click on the ad.

A search on MSN for masterspas brings up an ad for "Relaxing Hot Tubs - www.besthottubs.com" Clicking on that ad, takes you to the following URL (I broke the URL so it will wrap on this page)

and brings up the content, "No Such Link"

What can be the problem here? Is it a bug or a feature?
