Straight from the MAN page Roeland (man whois)...

     Whois looks up records in the databases maintained by several Network
     formation Centers (NICs).

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Use the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) database.
             It contains network numbers used in those parts of the world
             ered neither by APNIC nor by RIPE. Contact (handle) information
             should be looked up by appending "-ARIN" to the NIC handle:

whois -a is most commonly seen on BSD systems, and is most definitely
not available on every current UNIX.
