Heh.. . everyone seems to be responding with 'nslookup -type=ns foo.com'
or 'host -t ns foo.com', but those queries return *all* name servers and
make no distinction which one is the primary. For that you have to query
the SOA which contains the primary name server for a domain.
-> host -t soa foo.com
