The server is not HTTP compliant, and the URL is broken from here:

[nick@jarl nick]$ lynx -dump -head http://www.nationalgeographic.com/maps/

HTTP/1.0 404 Not found
Date: Wed, 02 May 2001 11:16:04 GMT
Content-Length: 305
Content-Type: text/html
Server: Netscape-Enterprise/3.6 SP3


OTOH, it responds to a GET request.  HTTP/1.0 and up require a server to
return the same headers for a HEAD and a GET request.
