How does Qualys WAS handle various HTTP status codes

We have a number of web assets returning 301,302,400, 403, 404, 500, 502, 503, 504 HTTP codes.

 

Regarding the 3xx redirection codes, if we have a site, say letsgethealthy.ca redirecting to SSL(HTTPS) are both sites scanned or only the site which the redirection leads to?

 

Also, for 4xx and 5xx codes, I assume these would lead to 'Service Errors Detected' messages when attempting a scan.

Would an infrastructure scan be more appropriate than a WAS scan for these targets?
