Maybe they changed the values that they require since he registered his
domain.  If they're that picky, I suggest you do what they say.  You can
always change it later, after they've installed the delegation records.

Another problem is that the slave server that you list in your NS records
doesn't seem to have the zone installed on it.  I think the DeNIC checks
all the servers before they'll install a domain.

IN is the default, so it doesn't matter whether you include it or not.
It's just a matter of style and habit.
