Pretty sure 'nanika' just means 'something else', i.e. Alluka probably has a split personality of some sorts.
I'd guess Alluka only makes demands from Killua since Alluka only trusts Killua, sort of like how Gon will only have Killua hold the ball for him against Razor because that's the guy he trusts.
I assume Alluka doesn't ask other family members because he has some sense of self preservation. If he makes a demand on a family member it's pretty likely he dies if they fail so he avoids doing that. I don't think Alluka can control what he asks, but he has some control over who he asks.

Actually, look at the conversation between Alluka and Killua. Alluka tells Killua to 'die'.
If you're one of the other Zs, knowing Alluka's ability, you can easily figure that was a pestering and it's inferred those guys would try to kill Alluka first. Sure you don't know if that'd actually stop the ability, but it's better than dying outright.
So the fact that Alluka doesn't ask his family is probably good for himself and his family. I'm sure Ilumi would immediately attempt to kill Alluka if he gets a question like that. I think even Silva will play safe and just kill Alluka first. Note that even if you agree to 'die', if that's not the 3rd pestering, you'd automatically fail the next 2 because you're dead, so if you get a 'die' pestering, it is always better to try to kill Alluka first since the worst that can happen is it doesn't work, but you were never going to fulfill any of the pestering after the 'die' pestering anyway.

Random funny part. Ilumi thought the two guys who will definitely die if the pestering fail is Killua plus himself because he must be the most loved one of Killua.
Yeah Nanika is just a name, like "whoever-ka"
People already speculate whether Nanika is some dead people's nen (grudges?)
I'd say it's just a different personality Alluka has to protect himself and his family. It seems like the real Alluka might demand another member to *die*, so to speak. It would never be the real Alluka talking to the rest of the family since I'm sure Alluka is aware if he said that, most of his family would attempt to kill him on the spot so he lets the other personality do the talking (or lack thereof).
chapter is out in mangastream
"I'm fucked up but you're a piece of work too, you know ..."
Ok, That made my day. I can disconnect from my computer now.
It's really amazing how Togashi manages to pump out top class chapters week after week! And the art is incredible!!!
This chapter had so many wins, from the descriptions of the power to the strange friendship between Hisoka and Illumi, from Illumi's unyielding will to protect the Zoldycks to Pariston's playing with the Zodiacs. And what a douche bag Milluki is, I knew he had no problem sacrificing someone for his own sake.
What I got from the "instructions" though is that the person asking the wish cannot be the same as the one taking the requests. If that's the case, who would want to wish for that knowing of the consequences? Last but not least, what's up with Alluka? Is it a boy or a girl and what's that darkness? It's also quite interesting how Illumi is unable to kill Alluka...
thats really complicated so failing to get what she wants and the death toll will stack like a book for the next one who will wish
alluka and killua are really close in my POV but the last panel give me the creeps
Ah Togashi sensei had us there, we didnt think about Killua would ask someone else to make the wish and he would pay the price. So things actually are even more complicated than what predicted here so far.
Anyway, with the election and the whole Zoldycks going on, think we need 2 chapters a week 0__0.
Awesome chapter is all I can say.
Alluka's granting wish is too complicated and still have many secrets... I love the part where Hisoka and Ilumi discussing Alluka's power with many LOL moments...
HxH really is a top class manga even without fighting etc it is a bit complicated for some people for them to not appreciate it but for me I find this the most interesting in Jump right now... I hope Togashi will not think of going hiatus again because things are getting interesting chapter by chapter...
