I've been told that nslookup will lie and provide incorrect information 
in some situations.  I have no idea what situations that is.  I would 
love to learn what they are.

If you know of such an example, please enlighten me.

As such, I tend to use nslookup on platforms without dig when or until I 
have reason to not do so.
