You need to setup a reverse lookup.

When you load nslookup, the first thing it tries to do is resolve the ipaddress to a server name.  When you don't have a reverse lookup zone setup, it will not find the name of the DNS server

Just load your DNS manager and expand your server and add a new reverse lookup zone.  Make it AD integrated or however your forward lookup zone is created.  Follow the prompts, it's fairly simple.  The zone should look something like 254.168.192.in-addr.arpa (reverse of the ip address).  Once you have it created add a PTR record back to your DNS server and the 192.168.254.202 ip address.  Once that is done, you shouldn't see that error anymore in nslookup.
