Re: DNS setup question

if i understand what your asking you should be able to

server <your new dns IP>

where domain.com is the domain you want to lookup.  the DNS will tell you
what it thinks the IP is.  if it is configured right it will show what you
expect. the server command tells nslookup to change it's default DNS to
ask some other server info.
