why do I get "No response from server"

I have printed the db.lkl file, so can I ask a question:

Are you saying that for the domain "lkl.ac.uk" I should have a 
nameserver called "ns1.lkl.ac.uk" and not the
one we have "ns1.lonklab.ac.uk".
What we did was to register 3 domains but with the same NS hosts 
"ns1.lonklab.ac.uk" for all 3.

$TTL    3H
lkl.ac.uk.      IN SOA  ns1.lonklab.ac.uk. dnsmaster.lkl.ac.uk. (
                           2006062202   ; serial number
                           3H           ; refresh every 3 hours
                           1H           ; retry every 3 hours
                           1W           ; expire after a week
                           1D           ; minimum )
; Name Servers
lkl.ac.uk.                          IN NS   ns1.lonklab.ac.uk.
lkl.ac.uk.                          IN NS   mail1.ccs.bbk.ac.uk.
