Question canonical name in solaris and linux

How can I get the "canonical name" in solaris and linux?

With canonical name I mean the BOLD text below.

Code:
/usr/sbin/nslookup hello.com
Server:         169.41.160.1
Address:        169.41.160.1#3

Non-authoritative answer:
hellos.com      canonical name = hello.com
Name:   hello.com
Address: 10.112.7.30
