This should be on LIH, but here goes anyway:
You have to do something like this:

$nslookup <domain_name>
Server: <ip>
$nslookup <domain_ip>
This should give you the server name.
For example:
[devdas@interoffice devdas]$ nslookup worldgatein.com
Server:  ns1.worldgatein.com

Name:    worldgatein.com

[devdas@interoffice devdas]$ nslookup  
Server:  ns1.worldgatein.com

Name:    ns1.worldgatein.com
