If you can send me more details, I'll want to work this out. I'm sort of 
the unofficial maintainer for the HTTP API. Sort of, because I wrote the 
damn thing and I'll rather have it kept in the core. It seems pretty 
stable to me, but there are bound to be edge cases that need to be 
looked at and fixed. If you didn't have the WP_DEBUG on, then it must 
have been one of the other transports: cURL or HTTP. However, I don't 
think the HTTP extension ever outputted errors before or it just never 
had a problem with 503 errors.

I'm not seeing any problems as of now, so either the problem was fixed 
or I'm not reproducing the problem that well. If it happens again, can 
you make a ticket with the following: What version of PHP? Whether you 
have HTTP extension? Whether you have cURL extension? Along with what 
page it occurred on and what you were doing.

That would help me a lot.
