They do. However HTML mail is hard to read and even harder to reply.
That's why I didn't read most of your former mails...

I recommend you skipping the part (bind adds 
current ORIGIN to names not terminated by dot) and replace 
"" by "@".

That would make the file easier to read and less prone to errors (mistakes).

... I hope these belong to one line, you can even skip the @ since you are still 
defining RRs for @

	IN	NS	ns1

... etc etc.

Since you clearly DO have A records for your NS'es, I guess the problem is 
in the zone in the internal view. Check that one.

you _can_ use views but note many of problems with bind come from bad 
understanding how views work.
