Do you mean you always look up off the same name servers? I am not sure of your question. Can you give more details?

if I do an nslookup on say abc.com ; 123.com etc I always get the same result with MYDOMAIN.com.

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    abc.com.MYDOMAIN.com
Address:  72.51.27.51

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    123.com.MYDOMAIN.com
Address:  72.51.27.51

In tcp/ip properties -> advanced -> under dns tab you probably have "append dns suffixes in this order" set.

And in such circumstances, in nslookup you should add a period to the end of the domain name, i.e.

nslookup
abc.com.
exit

"Remarks
• If ComputerToFind is an IP address and the query is for an A or PTR resource record type, the name of the computer is returned. If ComputerToFind is a name and does not have a trailing period, the default DNS domain name is appended to the name. This behavior depends on the state of the following set subcommands: domain, srchlist, defname, and search. "
