All you need to do is type nslookup <domain.com>

This will give you all of the authoritative DC/DNS servers available.

It will give you the IP addresses which then you can simply do ping -a <ip> and this will return the Name of the server.

Example
Ping -a 192.168.100.1

To list all the domain controllers in the trusted domain, try below command
netdom query /d:trusteddomainname DC

eg netdom query /d:Northamerica DC

Add your user to domain admin group or adminsitrator group of trusted domain so you will have permission and the above command should work.
