This is quite wrong.  You are being redirected through DNS to a bogus host name alias.

Can you run tcpdump as root and collect all UDP and TCP traffic for port
32 (DNS) on your main network interface?  For example, if your main NIC
is em0 you can run:

    # tcpdump -i em0 -nvv -s 2000 -w dns.pcap '(udp or tcp) && port 53'

Then run the same host/dig commands, stop tcpdump and either make the
pcap file available online somewhere or email us with the output of:

    # tcpdump -n -l -e -tttt -vv -s 2000 -r dns.pcap

The output of the final command should be a text dump of he captured
traffic, including any Ethernet headers from your host to the local

It will also help if you can tell us what your IP address is (although
that's probably relatively easy to guess from the DNS requests of the
dumped traffic).
