Here's your problem: 86400 IN PTR hall-brothers.com. 86400 IN PTR nopeakerplant.com. 86400 IN PTR showshirtsusa.com. 86400 IN PTR friedrich-family.com. 86400 IN PTR www.light-family.com. 86400 IN PTR dns1.light-family.com. 86400 IN PTR            hysl.org. 86400 IN PTR mail.light-family.com. 86400 IN PTR            o-dowd.net. 86400 IN PTR            valrey.net. 86400 IN PTR            cakables.com. 86400 IN PTR            miss-light.com. 86400 IN PTR            abcshirtusa.com. 86400 IN PTR            siteviewing.com. 86400 IN PTR            siteviewing.net. 86400 IN PTR            soccer-mail.com. 86400 IN PTR            abcshirtsusa.com. 86400 IN PTR            light-family.com. 86400 IN PTR            light-valrey.com. 86400 IN PTR            showshirtusa.com.

Get rid of all of these except the one that refers to mail.light- 

(The long owner name of this RRSet is due to CNAME redirection, a la 
RFC 2317.)

BTW: In your SOA record for this zone, you need to add dots to the 
ends of the first two values after "SOA". You currently, effectively, 
have this: 86400 IN            SOA 
dns1.light-family.com. webmaster.light-family.com. 2004032920 7200 3600 604800 7200

Thanks for the quick reply, Chris.

I have implemented the changes, now I guess we wait for the cache to 
And then the  folks at  4servers.com to follow...
