comment TTL when querying for any record with dig
The syntax for dig is dig name type. There is no stackexchange.com record type. ever.

First, I don't know why you would get any intelligent response from dig any stackexchange, because your parameters are backwards. There is no such thing as a stackexchange record type. If anything, you might get random un-cached data because you're asking for a record-type that can't be cached... or your query is not crafted in the way you want.

dig any stackexchange would attempt to lookup any of the stackexchange type. (which you probably have backwards) So, for a second time, what was EXACT the query you performed and what was unexpected?

Correct. +norecurse forces queries against the authoritative servers directly. +norecurse by definition does an iterative query.

Would you mind specifying the actual command you are using? I suspect that some of the parameters are switching to an iterative query rather than permitting a recursive query. (+norec +nssearch or +trace?)

comment Is it possible to dual boot two OS's at the same time?
VT is a processor feature. It is a matter of weather or not your CPU has the bits built in or not... and also if the motherboard has support for it. (the processor extensions can be disabled in many BIOSes) Usually it is enabled by default... but can be disabled. My HP Laptop had it turned off... but my supermicro servers have it turned on.

comment How can I direct a query to specific DNS server?
It's not entirely incorrect. The "domain-name" is only part of a hostname. You can indeed do lookups on just the "host" portion of the FQDN, omitting the domain suffix. NSLOOKUP will automatically attempt to use any search-suffixes configured in your system to obtain a match.
