BIND 8 help - can't connect to local dns server...

Am trying to set up local dns for my domain ...

Am pretty sure that I have the named.conf and local files setup
correctly.  When I just use the localhost named configuration, I can
connect to the server with no problem.

However, when I add the zones specific to the domain, that's when things
blow up.  When starting nslookup, it gives me an error before warping
over to the next server I have in resolv.conf:

*** Can't find server name for address Non-existent

I have a class-c subnet'd IP (net mask is: - is this
what's causing the problem? Is there a special way to configure bind
given this IP assignment?   Does the subnet'd address force you to
change your named file entries?
