My "Tor nslookup equivalent" of choice is nslookup:

fk@TP51 ~ $sockstat -4l | grep _tor
_tor     tor        1643  5  tcp4         *:*
_tor     tor        1643  6  tcp4         *:*
_tor     tor        1643  7  udp4           *:*
_tor     tor        1643  8  tcp4         *:*
fk@TP51 ~ $nslookup www.torproject.org tor-jail
Server:         tor-jail

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   www.torproject.org

That may not be possible with stable releases yet, though.
