Why is a Server Listed as a DNS Server When DNS is Not Installed On It?

I ran "nslookup -q=ns domain.com" to determine which of our servers are being used as DNS servers. It returned two servers back to me. However, the one server it returned does not even have DNS installed? Why would nslookup be telling me it is a DNS server?

Perhaps the information posted in the DNS zone is incorrect.
Contact your ISP to clarify this if they handle your DNS.
If you handle your DNS in-house, check the Primary DNS server and correct the zone file to include your two correct DNS servers.

(If you're using Active Directory integrated DNS, then there is no primary DNS server, just grab one of your Domain Controllers and make the change, it will replicate the change in-time with its counter part).

Hope this helps.
