>From the FreeBSD 10.0 release notes:

BIND has been removed from the base system. unbound(8)
<http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=unbound&sektion=8>, which is
maintained by NLnet Labs, has been imported to support local DNS resolution
functionality with DNSSEC. Note that it is not a replacement of BIND and
the latest versions of BIND is still available in the Ports Collection.
With this change, nslookup and dig are no longer a part of the base system.
Users should instead use host(1)
<http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=host&sektion=1> and drill(1)
<http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=drill&sektion=1> Alternatively,
nslookup and dig can be obtained by installing dns/bind-tools port.
