Dig works on the dns server, but the issue is why the workstations are not working, cannot do nslookup.

Have you tried to DIG or NSLOOKUP the domains to see if there is any
resolution taking place. Have a look at the logs to see if the name server
is starting up without any errors.  DNS will usually fail a badly
domain and continue to run.
