broken external queries

Hi all,

i'm currently in the throes of implementing new DNS servers based on the
latest Bind8. 

However, the primary new DNS server is sitting on the same network
as the existing primary, and i'm trying to configure the new DNS server
using the same domain. This is probably where my problem lies, but
I can resolve all of the nodes on our network using the zonefiles copied fr5om
the existing primary (via a sed command to change the hostname of the NS to the new one)

Now i cannot resolve external hosts! upon snooping the interface, I can see that
the box is contacting root servers, but not following up with the resolution.

Returns with Non-existant...

Any ideas?

many thanks
