$ whois -h whois.nic.ve nic.ve      

Servidor Whois de NIC-Venezuela (.VE)

Este servidor contiene informacion autoritativa exclusivamente de dominios .VE
Cualquier consulta sobre este servicio, puede hacerla al correo electronico whois at nic.ve
... etc.

There is no A record in the DNS for ve.whois-servers.net, which is what my client tries first. Perhaps this is where the confusion lies.
