nslookup stores the address of the server into global _res structure, into
_res.nsaddr_list[0].

Since _res is one of the worst designs in C library (it has so many flaws I
don't know where to start), it's no wonder this does not work reliably.

It works with uclibc.

I need to look into glibc source to figure out how it is supposed to work
there.
