>From what I can see, your forward and reverse lookups are working fine.
If you can resolve everything you need using host (using un-qualified
and/or fully-qualified names) or dig (using fully-qualified names only,
note -x option for making reverse lookups easier), I wouldn't worry too
much about nslookup's quirky behavior.
