DIG / NSLOOKUP message?

Can someone tell me what this means??
I seem to have everything configured correctly. I don't need to use a local DNS server to access the internet right? I can just use my ISP's DNS servers right?

using Redhat 9

Here's what dig and nslookup responds..

it sounds like you might have a server setup on your machine so you probably want to disable this if you don;t want to use it.

check your startup scripts
