I can get mail sometimes and not others.

"The nameserver for your domain is malfunctioning.

[linux-dev ph:~] host -t mx
Nameserver not responding MX record not found, try again

[linux-dev ph:~] host            A";

Here is the zone file for

@       IN      SOA (
                        2002101802      ; serial
                        ; 28800         ; refresh
                        360             ; refresh
                        14400           ; retry
                        3600000         ; expire
                        86400           ; default_ttl

                IN      A
                MX      10

localhost       IN      A

mx              IN      A
ns              IN      A

www             IN      A
mail            IN      A
sftp            IN      A

I have no idea what I did wrong.
It works from the inside and most people can send me mail (and this domain can sometimes).

It seems to work from the inside.
# host -t mx mail is handled by 10

Can somebody see what I did wrong?
