Ignoring out-of-zone data

Running Bind 9.3.0
I have a Class C (207.191.185) and several domain names each with an IP
address from that Class C. jellico.com is my primary domain name. Before
upgrading to Bind 9, I had the other domain names listed in jellico.com.db
multi-230 IN A 22.214.171.124
tspma.com. IN A 126.96.36.199
copperhill.com. IN A 188.8.131.52
multi-233 IN A 184.108.40.206
www.jellico.net. IN A 220.127.116.11
jellicoalumni.com. IN A 18.104.22.168
stair-way-to-heaven.com. IN A 22.214.171.124
They are also listed in 185.191.207.in-addr.arpa plus each has it's own
zone file: tspma.com.db, etc.
After upgrading to Bind 9, Bind complains about ignoring out-of-zone data in
I took the entries for the other domain names out of jellico.com.db and now
when I reload the name server it reloads without complaint.
The domain that I'm most concerned with right now is jellico.net It's IP
address is 126.96.36.199 I took it out of jellico.com.db, but it is still
listed in 185.191.207.in-addr.arpa like so:
4 IN PTR jellico.net.
and it has it's own zone file: jellico.net.db which looks like this:
; Authoritative data for jellico.net
; zone jellico.net
jellico.net. IN SOA ns.jellico.net. root.jellico.net. (
200611091 ; Serial
3600 ; Refresh one hour
900 ; Retry 15 minutes
604800 ; Expire one week
3600 ) ; Minimum TTL one hour
IN NS ns.jellico.net.
IN NS bluegrass.tcnet.net.
IN MX 10 mail.jellico.com.
IN MX 20 bluegrass.tcnet.net.
jellico.net. IN A 188.8.131.52
ns IN A 184.108.40.206
www IN A 220.127.116.11
ns.jellico.net. IN A 18.104.22.168
If I go to dnsstuff.com, I can resolve jellico.net to it's IP address, but I
cannot resolve the IP address back to jellico.net (reverse DNS isn't working
for this domain). So AOL will not accept mail from this domain. What have I
got wrong here?
