Remove ::1 from your preferred dns server entry under network adapter settings and enter primary DNS server's ipv4 address there and try again.

Hope this help.

Check your network adapters DNS configuration, it seems you have set some dns server that is not responding as primary DNS.

You can check this by running "ipconfig /all" and under "Local area connection" (usually) check entries under "DNS servers".

After seeing the details you provided , it seems that ::1 is entered in preferred DNS Server , which is the IPv6 representation of what's known as 127.0.0.1 in IPv4.
And when you do nslookup it is pointing to 'unknown' as AAAA/PTR record is missing from DNS for ipv6 address.

extended info in nslookup suggests that ipv4 record for your DC is working fine on your network.

So, If you are not using ipv6 you can safely remove this from your preferred dns server's entry.
For removing it see my first comment.

This seems to be a ipv6 record reg issue and you'll have to add an AAAA record to resolve nslookup issue.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816775(v=ws.10).aspx

If you dont want to add. your first step would be to remove ::1 from the preferred dns . let it remain 192.168.1.100 only.

I believe it will not break  Direct Access.

I am sorry i meant 192.168.1.200 in my last comment. Do this in both the network adapters. My mistake.
