Per suggestions here I am attempting to get rid of the 2 $ORIGIN statements in my zone file.

When I check my domain from dnsstuff.com I get this error:

ERROR: You have one or more lame nameservers. These are nameservers that do NOT answer authoritatively for your domain. This is bad; for example, these nameservers may never get updated. The following nameservers are lame:

..The only thing that changed was I commented out the 2 $ORIGIN statements and changed dss.state.la.us to @ in the SOA record.

Here is the zone file:
$TTL 3600       ; 1 hour
@               IN SOA  dssns.dss.state.la.us. rmccain.dss.state.la.us (
                                2007091901        ; serial
                                1200        ; refresh (20 minutes)
                                600        ; retry (10 minutes)
                                1209600    ; expire (2 weeks)
                                3600       ; minimum (1 hour)
                        NS      dssns.dss.state.la.us.
                        NS      dssns2.dss.state.la.us.
                        MX      10 smtp-ext1.dss.state.la.us.
                        MX      20 smtp-ext2.dss.state.la.us.
;$ORIGIN dss.state.la.us.
acess                   A
acess-info              A
acspoc                  A

Is there something wrong w/ my syntax?
