DNS Nslookup

I have a child domain ex: child.parent.com
from a computer member of that child domain, when I run Nslookup child.parent.com, I get :
server:dnsservername
address:10.x.x.x

Name:child.parent.com
adresseses: all ip adresses of my Domain controllers [they don't have ADzone intergarted]


1- why in address it shows all DCs IP addresses?

*some DCs when I ping their ip address with revers lookup : ping -a 10.x.x.x, it replies with gc_msdc.parent.com
2-why it doesn't reply with the computer name of the DC and why it returns the gc_msdc.parent.com instead of gc_msdc.child.parent.com



Thanks

2- now it's gone, fixed by itself.
by the way we installed a new DC, maybe the sync was not completely done by the time the strange thing I mentioned on bullet 2 happened.
