NXDOMAIN, as per RFC2136, is defined as:
NXDOMAIN 3 Some name that ought to exist,
does not exist.
Further explanation is also provided in RFC2308, ie:
Name errors (NXDOMAIN) are indicated by the presence of "Name Error"
in the RCODE field. In this case the domain referred to by the QNAME
does not exist. Note: the answer section may have SIG and CNAME RRs
and the authority section may have SOA, NXT [RFC2065] and SIG RRsets.

You will need to set up the appropriate reverse zone on your nameserver.
