setting up dns on solaris

Basically I have configured another box (nsswitch.conf and resolv.conf)
to point to my nice new DNS server. It sends the request okay when you
do an nslookup (you can see it on a snoop) but it comes back "server is
unavailable." This is despite no errors in /var/adm/messages on the DNS
server - it says ready to serve out DNS so I'm stumped.

Anyone see anything wrong in the config?
