Sorry, but this question has nothing to do with PowerDNS at all.
Firstly, nslookup is part of the bind suite of tools, and the behaviour
is local to nslookup. Secondly, you are using Windows, which has
Microsoft's obsolete and forked version of bind/nslookup.
Try using the Linux version of nslookup and you'll see the difference:
# nslookup solit.nl ns1.globe.hosting
The above example was run on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS, which has the nslookup
from bind 9.11.3
# which nslookup
# dpkg-query -S /usr/bin/nslookup
# dpkg-query -l dnsutils
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

ii dnsutils 1:9.11.3+dfsg-1ubuntu1
