No caching on the edge servers with free account?

I have been using Cloudflare for years, and I always assumed that even with the free account my HTML pages are cached on Cloudflare edge servers, meaning even if my web server is down, the HTML page will be delivered still. I finally decided to test it, turned web server down, reload my site front page - and I see Cloudflare error report, telling me that my server is down. Is it supposed to serve HTML from the cache instead? My HTML have max-age in Cache-Control headers set to 1 day, so for 24 hours Cloudflare should deliver the cached HTML, right?

HTML files are not cached by default, see…

You can change this behaviour using Cache Rules in your dashboard.
