ACME v2 - 409 Response for Existing Account

I am currently modifying my own LE client (based on v1) to be compatible with the ACME v2 spec ( i’m using draft-09 for reference). As per the specification, to get the Account URL for existing account key, the server must respond with status 200 and the account URL in “Location” header.

However, I’m receiving 409 response with error message “Account key is already in use”, and I’m also receiving the account URL in the Location header.

My doubt is why i’m receiving 409 instead of 200, or I’ve misunderstood the spec anywhere.
