There's a delegation record for the mdwg.mer.cap.gov domain that lists
ns1.cap.gov as one of its authoritative servers. However, the address of
ns1.cap.gov points to this machine, and it doesn't have that domain
installed on it.

Your machine thinks that rs.internic.net is an alias that points to a
nonexistent name. I'm not sure why it thinks this; the authoritative
server for that name doesn't have a CNAME record for it.
