No the ICMP is not blocked. 

The thing is that, the moment i created this domain, the above
mentioned ns1 and ns2 servers have become the authoritative servers
for my domain.

Now i have also setup an authoritative server for the same domain and
would like to point the authoritative nameservers for the domain to my
server. This operation is failing. I know that the service provider is
giving some silly reason like name not pinging and so on.

Can anybody give me some pointer/solution for this problem.
