[CentOS] how do I find out which nameserver returns a DNS query?

DIG tells you which server returned the results.  Look for the SERVER  
line, should be third from the bottom.  If you want to query specific  
nameservers directly, use dig like this:

dig @ns1.myserver domainname.com
dig @ns2.myserver domainname.com

etc, etc.
