If the lens is a US warranty ,your only cost will be to sent it to Nikon Service Repair.I have sent 3 Nikon lens back for focus problems.( It tells you are their quality control--my 24 F1.4G was so bad out of the box even fine tuning didnt make any difference.). In each case the lens came back much improved.

What was interesting about your 24mm was that I experienced the same thing when I took it out of the box. In fact it couldn't focus on infinity in one test. It drove me crazy. I thought that it needed fine tuning, etc. However, after playing with the lens a bit it appeared that the motor was "exercised" and suddenly everything started working perfectly.
