No response to message sent to nonexistent user

If someone sends a message to a nonexistent user then Openfire does not respond with an error message.

How can I change this behavior?

How exactly are they able to send to a nonexistant user? What client are you using?

In Spark you would go Actions --> Start a Chat and then you can enter whatever name you would like:

Ex : sjdfklasjdfnasdf@anyhost

The same happens if you send a presence subscription to a non-existent user. This is defined in the XMPP spec and I believe it’s for security reasons. The same happens if you want to add or chat with a user of a remote server. The only case where you will get some error is when you try to use a remote server that does not exist.
