Which servers were you observing here? I tried lldb-server and gdbserver and they don't send the ack back (It seems like a bad idea anyway, as it could lead to an infinite ack ping-pong).
I have removed this code as it was causing flakyness on the bots. If there is a server that does this, and we care about supporting it, then we can add a new targeted test which emulates this behavior, but then we need to also fix the client to handle this situation better.
