TSC: 404 for empty search result

I have a big .gov client with internal search result pages that are indexed, but occasionally the dynamic pages show a "no result" page. Should that page be generated as a 404 with some sort of rules that it`s only shown when the search comes up empty? Or is there some other way of handling this that I`m not seeing?
