Just a gues: 

what if nslookup at first try to resolve test.com.HOME.COM because HOME.COM is 
your default domain on your XP client, and after that, because it fails ask 
for test.com and get the right answer (this will not be loged)? This is the 
wrong order, but it is Windows XP. Everything is possible... ;-)
