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.

Are you getting this when doing an NSLookup, or somewhere else?
