That's my suggestion too, but my client said that he's already got  
time/effort/etc invested in this host. I agree, if one thing is wrong,  
then who knows what else is wrong. IF I can get them to fix this, then  
it might be ok, and we just move on. IF it's fixed, but then there are  
other problems, then a move would be best. Same with if they won't/ 
don't fix it.
So, as far as validating my sleuthing skills, can anyone give me a yea  
or nay? Is the secondary NS record misconfigured?
