Lots of people are going to say that nslookup is broken, 
and windows is super broken ( I agree that windows is broken) 
however the issue with nslookup is that 
__ nslookup is functioning as written __ .

It is trying to do a forward/reverse lookup on the local name server 
and failing. You can “fix” this by adding a reverse zone for the private 
address space you have  your machines in. Be aware that sprintlnk  
won’t have that  info.
