In the same way you define an A record for "www", you must define an A  
record for "".

Your zone should look like

@ IN SOA ( <soa params> )
   IN NS
   IN NS
   IN MX <prio>

and here you add
   IN A <ip.address>

After checking the zone using named-checkzone, reload it (with rndc reload  
zonename) and check using dig (dig A @your.server).
