Hi Damien,
We had this discussion in our company some days ago. If a customer is not
permitted to get a 

special service we decided to use the 403 status.

The 403: Forbidden is very clear, You are not allowed! This will additional
give clear lines in the log files: 

Somebody was trying to do something, but she/he was not allowed to do so.
This is similar if somebody 

tries to scan your e.g. ‘/picture’ directory.
