The problem is that dns.integrant.ca is a CNAME and not an A record.
;; ANSWER SECTION:
dns.integrant.ca. 86400 IN CNAME integrant.ca.
integrant.ca. 86400 IN A 126.96.36.199
According to the standards, an NS must point to an A RR. Most
recent dns (and thus bind) versions adhere to the standards and
thus will not resolve the domain. Older implementations sometimes
follow the CNAME.
