most times for me it is because I haven't fretted the note or string properly. some part of my finger touches it when it isn't supposed to; the string buzzes.
sometimes when the D string is hit hard, like during a strum, it vibrates hard and bumps into a fret; then it can buzz.
at the nut, a string can get pinched or lay seated too deep because the nut groove is too big; then the string can buzz.
a guitar improperly set up is another.
so it's either technique or hardware.

Thrown across a room?

That puts the D tuner on the upper left at risk on a 3 per side guitar. Or the G on the upper right.

That process can knock the nut loose, or a brace inside an acoustic body that resonates on D? :?
