dsquery can give wrong results?

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
if the AD database is not maintained right, we could have wrong result in the following scenario:

The server is still in the database. so dsquery brings it back, but in reality, that server was trashed last year..

what about the other way:
can a server be on the domain and not in the AD database and hence not reported by dsquery ?

I think the problem is dsquery  is not real time, right?
