Actually, everyone gets both; the device picks which one to use, which is

Are you sure?
For instance, a PING wacluster.millikin.edu alternated between 67 and 66 upon
each startup. (They all fail).
So it appears your system is handing out one address only, and switches between
the two.

I havent figured out the nslookup arguments that make exact same request as a
simple DNS request.
