I suspect one of my domain's name servers is wrong (while the other is right) regarding my reverse DNS.

the name server is:
ns2.softlayer.com

How do I query (MY IP ADDRESS) against ns2.softlayer.com and check all  domain name(s) it resolves to?

If you have or install the dig tool you can use dig maybe...

something like "dig -x [yourip] @ns2.softlayer.com"

nslookup might work, but might not return everything :

nslookup 
> server  ns2.softlayer.com
> set type = all
> [yourip] 

Open in new window
