OK, first the obvious, silly questions.

Did you reload named after making all of these changes?  What are the
name and IP address of this name server?  Do the same name and IP
address appear when you enter 'nslookup' by itself?  Or 'dig'?  What is
in your /etc/resolv.conf?

Can you 'traceroute'?  Reliably?

What happens when you say 'nslookup' or
'dig @'?
