ADFS does not support automated use of remote metadata sources, as it 
can't do that safely and is missing many features needed to make that 

The SP handler is not meant to be used to provide metadata directly to a 
peer in any case, it's for example use in preparing metadata to provide to 
federations or to partners out of band.

For testing, of course, it's fine, but bad habits while testing inevitably 
become production.

As for the error, that's on Microsoft. But since you're doing essentially 
the two things I'm suggesting you shouldn't do above, you can take that 
for what it's worth.
