	Checking the online debugging sites, some problems are turned up. 
See <>, <>, and 
<>.  The problems that are reported should 
not be show-stoppers (reverse DNS for your nameservers is screwed up, 
the "expire" TTL in your SOA record is much too long, the SOA MNAME 
field is bogus, etc...), but without more information it's hard to 
know what may be going on.

	Are you seeing anything in the logs regarding this domain?  Have 
you tried any command-line debugging tools like "dnswalk" or "doc"?
