Regardless of the stopping rule, host and nslookup ought to display
the FQDN they are claiming to get (say) an NXDOMAIN for, rather than
the unqualified one. The OP would probably have been a lot less
mystified if the message had been

Host www.undernet.org.my-domain.example not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

rather than

Host www.undernet.org not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
