	Check your delegations.  It's probably still registered with the 
TLD nameservers.  It may be a case where the machine itself had a 
hostname registration and the IP address for that hostname is no 
longer valid.  It may be that you've changed your NS records within 
your zone, but you haven't gone back to your TLD operator and had 
them update their delegations.
