Non-authoritative answer - should be authoritative

  It seems that my primary nameserver is only giving me "non-authoritative
answer's".  Why would this be?  I've double checked things with the O'Reilly
TCP/IP Network Administration (crab) book - things look to be set up
correctly.  All the necessary files exist and appear properly formatted.  My
primary server is running on Redhat Linux 6.1.

  Here is snapshot that illustrates my problem:


[root at noc /root]# nslookup
Default Server:

> set type=NS

Non-authoritative answer:
techcontrol.comnameserver =

Authoritative answers can be found from:
noc.techcontrol.cominternet address =
> server
Default Server:

> set type=any
> noc

Non-authoritative answer:     internet address =


  Any ideas that could get me looking in the right direction would be most
helpful.  Thanks!
