No it didn't:
$ wget http://this.host.does.not.exist/
Resolving this.host.does.not.exist... failed: Host not found.
$ telnet http://this.host.does.not.exist/ 80
http://this.host.does.not.exist/: No address associated with name
Getting an error message in Internet Explorer does not count as
retrieving a document to me not does it to WGET, TELNET or any other
mechanism I'd use to dereference that URL.
