best status code for bad auth method

Hi all

hopefully a quick question...

what is the best response code for a proxy that receives a request with 
a Proxy-Authorization header that specifies a method that is not 
acceptable to the proxy?

another 407?
403?  We don't want the client to repeat the request as is...

or do we need a new status code for "auth method not allowed".
