check_dns uses nslookup binary to perform its checks rather than using C library functions. This means an unnecessary reliance on extra binaries being installed.
This is in version 1.4.12

Yes, it would be nice if check_dns wouldn't rely on external binaries. However, there are no C library functions which provide the required functionality, we'd have to implement that ourselves. Patches welcome! :-)
I wouldn't classify this as a bug, but rather as a (low priority, compared to other tasks on our TODO list) wish list item, so I'll move it over to the "Feature Requests" tracker.
