Default Pressure gradient normal to wall

steph79 is on a distinguished road

Can I ask does fluent prescribe the pressure gradient normal to a wall as being zero, as opposed to extrapolating the pressure from the freestream to the wall?

From what I can gather dp/dn = 0 appears to be the case. If so is there a way I can work around this approximation?
