Possible Zone settings issues

Hey All,

I have an interesting problem.

We have a bind 9 installation on dns.integrant.ca.  It holds several zones
for clients, two of which are chownequipment.com and njohnsonequipment.com. 
The chownequipment.com domain has been moved over to different DNS servers
due to the following problem...

There are several DNS servers that can not resolve the domain name, and
several that CAN resolve the domain.  We're quite confused over the whole
thing, and makes things difficult (obviously), like when I attempted to
validate a clients page with the W3C validators, and it couldn't find the
host, yet I was looking at it in my browser, and the domain has been active
for a few months.

Here is the output from digging the domain from the dns server

; <<>> DiG 9.3.0 <<>> @dns.integrant.ca -t any njohnsonequipment.com
