Reverse lookup response format

Hello, I apologize if this has been discussed before. I tried to search the
archives but couldn’t find anything.

I would like to have the behavior of the reverse lookup responses to only
include the hostname, not the hostname with the reverse zone appended. So
for example:

# nslookup      name = server1.ctois.local

Instead of the way it is now:

# nslookup      name =

Is this possible? Thanks in advance.
