I am trying to figure out what is the default OpenSSL server side behavior when we send the following command

openssl s_client -connect localhost:8089 < /dev/zero 2>&1

What is the expected/default  behavior of a TLS server.
Should it close the connection , or continue to accept the NULL characters.
