Manuals seem to claim just the opposite.

Linux Manual:
On success 0 is returned, and node and service names, if requested, are 
filled with NUL-terminated strings, possibly truncated to fit the specified 
buffer lengths.  On error a nonzero value is returned, and  errno is set 

Return Values
Success returns zero. Any nonzero return value indicates failure. Use the 
WSAGetLastError function to retrieve error information.

Best regards,
