Is this correct? You want to provide a list of server names, perform a DNS query for those (why?), then ping, and log the results?

You are correct. Only thing is I want to perform an nslookup and ping separately for a list of servers in a text file and pipe the output to a csv file. This is required so that I can fulfill any business requirements.

Are we on W2012 R2/W8.1 or later? Those allow for new cmdlets making things easy:
Get-Content C:\Temp\EE\Servers.txt |
  % {
    Resolve-DnsName $_ -EA SilentlyContinue 
    if (!$?) { [PsCustomObject] @{ Name = $_; IP4Address = '' } }
  } |
  Select Name, IP4Address |
  Export-Csv -NoType C:\Temp\EE\DNSLookups.csv
