DNS: Server Failed Errors

So I am stumped.  We have a MS network, it uses the integrated AD DNS option.  All is working fine really, internal DNS resolution is fine and I can do NSLookups to every site out there (google, yahoo, etc) you name it....except one.  Everytime I do an NSLookup to that site I get back....

can't find: Server failed

I am not sure how to even trouble shoot this as it is one site only.  Attempts to this single address from say my home works fine.

You can use the set debug option in NSLookup to see which queries and responses are being sent. If it's an internal box, check the record off course. Be aware that a response can come from cache as well (workstation and dns server) which makes troubleshooting interesting. If you are working from home you might have a different nameserver - verify your ip settings both at work and home to spot the differences. Then use nslookup in debug mode to see where it goes wrong.

THank you for your post, through NSLookup troubleshooting we determined that a name server soemwhere in the cloud was using a bad path to the desired address.
