What do you mean?
if you send to the server something like 

OPTIONS /foo HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com

* If there is a resource defined like in this case
  "http://www.example.com/foo"
  then the server should return a "200 OK". [1]
* If the server doesn't support the OPTIONS method, 
  then it should return a "405 Method Not Allowed" [2]

But I might miss entirely your point.
