So what tool has replaced it?  I have only been using nslookup for some 
14 years...

nslookup - ::1

also had 'connection timeout, no servers could be reached'.

Which would be expected if nslookup does not support IPv6 (particularly 
if it has been deprecated and replaced with something else, what).

I changed /etc/resolv.conf to have:

nameserver ::1

in it, and ping6 -n host.htt. still got 'unknown host'
