As you can see from the verbose output, it's just calling nslookup, so
it's not likely to be a plugin bug, but an issue with your nslookup.
You can try doing the same by pasting the nslookup command you have
above, and see if you get the same behavior.

The behavior on mine is as expected.

$ ./check_dns -s google.com -v
/usr/bin/nslookup -sil google.com
CRITICAL - Plugin timed out while executing system call is a non-valid server for my host, and as you can see,
behaves exactly as you'd expect it to.
