>From man 1 whois:

<snip>
DESCRIPTION
  whois searches Whois servers for the object on the command line.
 
  The host to query is taken from a global configuration file, a
  configuration file specified on the command line, or selected
  directly on the command line.
<snip>

So, the question becomes, what host are you querying for whois
responses?
