nslookup looks like it’s returning the correct data. The A record points to, which matches the address that nslookup is reporting under the “Non-authoritative answer” heading.

Dig can produce more concise output. For example, to query one of Digital Ocean’s nameservers, you could run:

$ dig a +short

nslookup’s server is referring to your recursor, not the nameserver.
