Where are you running the nslookup from?  A workstation or the SBS208 box?

If its a workstation, make sure that the computer is using the SBS2008 server as its default DNS server in the IP address settings.  This can be checked with an ipconfig /all

If it on the server, make sure that the server is set to use itself as the DNS server.  Also, make sure the DNS services are started and check the DNS zones pulled over correctly in the DNS MMC console.

That looks perfectly normal to me. One of the first things nslookup does when launched it does a reverse DNS lookup on itself. If you haven't set up the reverse zone, you get the "default server unknown" peice, and then you get the IP address of the server (in this case, an IPv6 address).
If you are using SBSMigration, simply continue down the migration. DON'T stop and try random tests midway, or you will have issues. If data hasn't been properly migrated yet, then things won't work as expected. EVen the tests you can/should do are documented in Jeff's kits. Follow those.
