I have a domain with 2 DNS servers. I rebooted 1 of both, but meanwhile, the 2nd doesn't take over (?).

When I do a nslookup, it just timesout on default dns while there is a second one, which it just doesn't query(?)

Note: dns settings of dns servers theirselves is as default, then the ip address of the second one as secondary. That's right ... right?
But however, it shouldn't matter in this case.

Why my second dns isn't queried ...?
