Please forgive me for my naivety, but since when did a host name have a
WHOIS record?  

I just went to Verisign's WHOIS website
(http://registrar.verisign-grs.com/whois/), and I see they have an option to
query for NS records.  Interesting, never saw that before in a WHOIS site

it probably means that ns1.mtcnet.net did not have its WHOIS record.
Is does now. Some registrars require nameservers to have WHOIS records if
you want to use them for registering domains.
