There may be a simpler answer.
If your NS resource record really looks like what was posted, it is in error
and the zone shouldn't even load. Check your logs for this when you start
I suspect that the "3600" is an explicit TTL for the record, but this value
shouldn't be part of the resource record data, the part following the RR
type. The record should look more like:
games.abc.com. 3600 IN NS ns1.example.com.
games.abc.com. 3600 IN NS ns2.example.com.
Where the explicit TTL follows the domain name on the left hand side. Run
your zone file through "named-checkzone" to look for problems with your
