Hi, I am having problem delegating subdomain for internal DNS server, 
ops.company.com to another department.  I am running BIND 9.2.0.  I 
googled for three days and I thought this is pretty straight forward 
process but doesn't work for me.   the subdomain server is  running 
windows 2003 DNS.   subdomain zone (ops.company.com) have been setup and 
working on the windows 2003 DNS server.  However on my FreeBSD master 
server (ns1i.company.com) I am having problem delegating the subdomain 
(ops.company.com).  Also note that the subdomain (ops.company.com) DNS 
server is in another domain, dns1.company2.com.   dns1.company2.com will 
be master for ops.company.com subdomain.  This is how I have it setup.

On my FreeBSD master server, ns1i.company.com (
company.com zone file,

ops     86400           IN      NS      dns1.company2.com.
dns1.company2.com.       86400   IN      A

in my /etc/host file      dns1.company2.com

When i do, "ndc reload" this is the message in the /var/log/debug

Jan 18 10:55:31 ns1-i named[25542]: dns_master_load: 
soa/company.com.db:14: ignoring out-of-zone data (dns1.company2.com)
Jan 18 10:55:32 ns1-i named[25542]: zone company.com/IN: loaded serial 
Jan 18 10:55:32 ns1-i named[25542]: zone company.com/IN: sending 
notifies (serial 2004011704)
Jan 18 10:55:32 ns1-i named[25542]: client transfer of 
'company.com/IN': AXFR-style IXFR started

and host commands can't find it.

# host -t ns ops.company.com ns1i.company.com
Using domain server:
Name: ns1i.company.com

Host ops.company.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

What am i doing wrong and how can I further troubleshoot this?

Thanks so much!
