	Why does everyone want to hide details and then expect to
	get helpful answers?

	What is the configuration? named.conf and resolv.conf
	Is the server behind a firewall?
	What is being syslogged (/var/adm/messages)?
	What is logged when you turn on logging?
		ndc trace 
		<directory from options>/
	Have you bought a copy of "DNS and BIND"?
