Is the name of the slave nameserver in any zone that it serves? If so, then
you must have a glue A record in the *parent* zone (possibly a gTLD or
ccTLD zone) that will need to be changed, in addition to the A record in the
zone itself. You may have to go through your registrar to get the glue record
