I like BIND 9 better errors.
The zone is has correct syntax.
f0rk.com. IN SOA ns0.f0rk.com. dmitri.f0rk.com (
Missing "." on end of e-mail address.
e.g. are you dmitri at f0rk.com.fork.com ?
Negative TTL of 38400?! Seems generous, 5 or 10 minutes normally
f0rk.com. IN NS ns0.f0rk.com.
f0rk.com. IN NS 184.108.40.206
NS records point to A records, not IP addresses. Unfortunately
the code doesn't spot this as an IP address is nominally a valid
220.127.116.11.f0rk.com doesn't exist ;-)
ns0.f0rk.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
ns1.f0rk.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
@ IN A 126.96.36.199
All looks like it ought to work, and indeed my first query for
f0rk.com worked fine despite these issues.
How do you think it is failing exactly?
The directnic secondary isn't working (and isn't listed in the
zone file as a name server!).
