    We have 2 sites in different locations, both locations (Boston and Chicago)
    has same windows 2003 domain controllers with DNS installed and have
    forwarders enabled. Both sites EXACT same config, but one of the sites DNS
    is much faster DNS resolution. At slow site if I do: nslookup
    it does not resolve at first time only at second time and it hesitates.
    I am at the location where DNS server has slow resolution, if I set my local
    machine primary DNS to faster site it resolves much faster even though it is
    at another site 1000miles away.

    Thanks for any replies in advance.

    Both sites have the same forwarder?
    Try a different forwarder on the slow site.
