I'm not sure what would be the proper behavior. What do you think would be better than returning an invalid request?

If there are fewer than 2 certificates (i.e. 1) then the call to verify_ca() will return DANE_E_INVALID_REQUEST causing the client to ignore the TLSA records instead of rejecting the certificate (e.g. when there are only TLSA records with usage CA).
