Do you have a firewall on your system that's blocking port 53? Go into the security configuration tool and check that port 53 is accessible from the network.

Most firewalls will allow the "system" (Windows subsystem) to access 53. Although I wouldn't rule it out, I don't think that's the issue.

On a much more simple note....does your XP box point to your Linux DNS?
