Rebooting stops resolving for a while

When I reboot my server sometimes my domains and mail servers are not
available for an unknown amount of time but after several hours
everything returns to normal and everything can be accessed. The strange
thing is if after a reboot I try to access the domain or mail server
from my machine at home it doesn't work but if I go somewhere on the net
and try a ping test from somewhere else in the world it always works.
Can someone take a look at my main zone file and and a client zone file
and tell me if anything doesn't look right.
Main Zone File
mydomain.com. IN SOA 184.108.40.206. mydomain.com. (
mydomain.com. IN A 220.127.116.11
mail.mydomain.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
smtp.mydomain.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
www.mydomain.com. IN A 126.96.36.199
ftp.mydomain.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
mydomain.com. IN NS ns1.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com. IN NS ns2.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com. IN MX 5 mail.mydomain.com.
mail.mydomain.com. IN PTR mydomain.com
Client Zone File
clientdomain.com. IN SOA abertron01. gary at abertron.co.uk. (
clientdomain.com. IN A 184.108.40.206
mail.clientdomain.com. IN A 220.127.116.11
www.clientdomain.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
ftp.clientdomain.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
clientdomain.com. IN NS ns1.mydomain.com.
clientdomain.com. IN NS ns2.mydomain.com.
clientdomain.com. IN MX 5 mail.mydomain.com.
Basically nothing works from from home computer after I reboot the
server but I seem to be able to access the server from elsewhere after a
reboot so what on earth is going on here.
I'm totaly confused any ideas.
