I have come across the strange behaviour of Bind 9.2.4-2 on RHEL - AS 4.
Below is the description to my issue.
My name server is a forwarder server to the other name server for
resolving some domain records. And, both the name servers are separated
using the firewall, allowing to communicate over port 53.
The dig output for resolution, works perfectly fine as shown below.
[root at abc masters]# dig @22.214.171.124 soa cc.abc.com
; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> @126.96.36.199 soa cc.abc.com
;; global options: printcmd

But my nslookup output gives below error.
[root at abc masters]# nslookup
** server can't find cc.abc.com: SERVFAIL
> server 220.127.116.11
Default server: 18.104.22.168
What could be the reason for dig be worknig fine and nslookup be
failing? .... This used to work earlier and it stops all of a sudden
with no reason and/or no configuration change !!!
