Disclaimer: Although NSLookup seems to work fine, it is distributed "as is". Use at your own risk. So there.
NSLookup is a small, AppleScript based, utility for doing DNS (IP address) lookups. It does not yet have a real interfact (only a Quit menu) so you must have and use AS to control it. (I may add a simple user interface in the future.) See the application's dictionary for syntax. Note that when it uses the term "IP address" that it is referring to a long integer value.
tell application "NSLookup"
set theAddress to (Name to Address "ackmo.baylor.edu") -- the address is a long
set theDot to (Address to Dot theAddress) -- the dot is w.x.y.z format
display dialog theDot
