Private Zones and Deligation bind9.7.2

After setting up a private zone which should have deligated
queries to some Microsoft DNS's, I received a report that an
additional host in that domain did not resolve. They were right.
I had to put an A record in my deligated zone for that system to
make it resolve so I think I have something set wrong. Queries
to that zone do not seem to end up going to the MS DNS's. Here
is what I installed for the zone file:

r.ds.					      3600 IN SOA stwrdc02.r.ds. hostmaster.r.ds. 4 900 600 86400 3600
r.ds.					      3600 IN NS	stwrdc02.r.ds.
r.ds.					      3600 IN NS	stwrdc03.r.ds.
stwrdc02.r.ds.				      3600 IN A
stwrdc03.r.ds.				      3600 IN A
;This one should have resolved if one of the DC's had been queried.
stwnetpro01.r.ds.	1200	IN	A
localhost.r.ds.				      3600 IN A

named-checkzone r.ds likes the zone.
