Hello Wolfgang,
                           Everything looks OK for the additional
A records in the zone. I see "", "",
"" and "", all resolving to the same address. (Why
don't you just use CNAME's, by the way?)

    If you want to create a subdomain of, you'll need a
delegation (NS records) in the zone file to whichever servers
serve the subdomain.
