I was getting nothing in the zone according to the named_dump.db.

So I unzipped named-checkzone from Bind 9 and ran that by cutting and 
pasting from my named.conf, and found a typo in the named.conf.


Fixed the typo and everything is working as it should.

Now I can ask my ISP to delegate my 64 addresses to me, as 
they indicated they were willing to do.....

And one less thing to change during the server swap.

Thanks all!
