You can in fact query external domains and MX records from your internal servers. Do the following below...

For MX Record Lookup
nslookup <press enter>
set type=mx <press enter>
domain.com <press enter>

Open in new window


Forward DNS lookup

nslookup <press enter>
set type=A <press enter>
domain.com <press enter>

Open in new window


Reverse DNS Lookup
nslookup <press enter>
set type=ptr
x.x.x.x <press enter>

Open in new window

You can use a workstation or server. It does not matter.
