You got the same answer back, in the end. The error message you got about non-existent domain is probably because you don't have a
reverse lookup zone for your internal subnet. It really isn't important,
even though nslookup tends to think it is.

In general, I'd recommend debugging/testing DNS lookups with a proper tool
like dig, and not nslookup which has a couple of snags which can easily
confuse more than it helps.
