Just to be clear here, so nslookup mail.scotchi.net ns1.dreamhost.com should not return SERVFAIL, is that correct?

Here's what I get searching for my own mail domain (not the real example, but also on Dreamhost): nslookup mail.scotchi.net ns1.dreamhost.com I get a SERVFAIL, however, if I just do a dig / nslookup / whatever without specifying the nameserver, everything is spiffy.
