Nslookup reveals wrong information

I have an Exchange 2007 server.

When I do a NSLOOKUP and set type=MX, I do not get a Non-authoritative response.

Below is what I get.

> set type=mx
> abcmymail.com
Server:  abc.mydomain.local
Address:  192.168.0.2

abcmymail.com
        primary name server = abc.mydomain.local
        responsible mail addr = hostmaster.mydomain.local
        serial  = 19
        refresh = 900 (15 mins)
        retry   = 600 (10 mins)
        expire  = 86400 (1 day)
        default TTL = 3600 (1 hour)

Help!

It looks like you are using your internal DNS server to perform the lookup. Try setting an external DNS server and you should get the Non-Authorative response your looking for.

Example:
nslookup

> server 4.2.2.2
Default Server:  vnsc-bak.sys.gtei.net
Address:  4.2.2.2

> set type=mx
> abcmymail.com
