There is no firewall between the two hosts. I ran a "dig +nostats NS" to see if it recoginized the
domain and it didn't. It has been added to the parent level domain server
"" as a secondary Name Server. I hope this information further
assists in narrowing down the problem.

	It there a firewall between the two machines?  If so you
	may need to set transfer-source.
