When we do a nslookup query for an mx record for our own mail server the
query does not return the IP address. We have a secondary DNS server
(Novell 6.03) handling the query that is configured to forward anything it
can't resolve to our ISP DNS server. Yet, if we try the same query on a
workstation configure to use our ISP DNS server directly the results
include the IP address. Is there something about Novell's DNS services
that inhibits displaying that information? Here's the example of the
query handled by our secondary DNS server (we're budget.state.ny.us;
labor.state.ny.us is used for comparison--it does return the mail server's
ip address).

> set type=mx
> budget.state.ny.us

Non-authoritative answer:

budget.state.ny.us
