find a record in DNS zone

I have a computer named SINGO
It's not in Active Directory
when I ping it it gives me the ip address 10.1.1.20 and its FQDN   SINGO.Bank.Domain.com
when I go to the DNS zone Bank.Domain.com and start looking by name or IP I can't find it.
when I use NSlookup 10.1.1.20

it gives me the name of the DNS computer and and it's IP address
it gives me the name of the computer SINGO and its IP address


Any idea on how to find the record of this computer in DNS?

Thanks

When you do lookup by ip address you looking in Reverse Lookup zone so check in reverse zones.

then its probably sitting in root domain zone or cache plus your local computer contains cache clear your computers cache
ipconfig /flushdns

I looked all over DNS zones and flushed dns in my computer, but still could not find the record and I still can ping it, and in NSlookup it shows like it's in the DNS server.

I run the filter in DNS, and went through all zones and could not find the record.
is there any free tool that finds the DNS records.?

very interesting just out of curiosity are you looking at the same dns server as what you get in nslookup?
oh by the way when you do nslookup on the computer what answer do you get
Name yourcomputer.domain.com
Address: x.x.x.x

or

Non-authoritative answer:
Name yourcomputer.domain.com
Address: x.x.x.x

if non authoritative signifies that your dns does not owe the record.

Is there a way to query all of the DNS database on the SBS 2003 server to locate either an ip address or the host name? I have scanvenged, cleared cache and restarted DNS. In the example below, I can find no trace of 67.119.201.50 or mail.isiscs.com in the DNS of "myserver". Is this response coming from the local DNS server or from the forwarder DNS (outside)?
nslookup mail.isiscs.com
Server:  myserver.domain.local
Address:  192.168.254.6

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    mail.isiscs.com
Address:  67.119.201.50
