I have a Synology nas, its hostname is "NAS".
If I query it with a ping, its name is resolved correctly.
If I query its name with nslookup, hte lookup fails because google's dns 126.96.36.199 (the default dns server of my networks) doesn't know this host.
I also checked my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts file, but it is empty.
Where this DNS record comes from? I thought something like mDns, but does ping utility use mdns?
I also checked the dns cache with ipconfig /displaydns and here I cannot find this hostname.
