subdomain delegation question

Hello all
I have what may be an easy question here, but it's been a while since I did
much with Bind, so I'm not entirely sure if I'm doing something wrong here.

What I'm trying to do, should be relatively simple i think, but for some
reason i cannot get it to work. I'm trying to delegate a subdomain to a
separate nameserver.

My zone file looks like this:

$TTL 86400

; Start of Authority            86400      IN SOA (

                                                  2011052000 ; Serial

                                                  3600       ; Refresh

                                                  900        ; Retry

                                                  864000     ; Expire

                                                  86400      ; Min TTL


; Host                    IN A

; Nameserver                IN NS                        IN NS                        IN NS

I have the appropriate entry for in named.conf.

I can resolve the nameserver for the subdomain:

But i cannot dig for ns for, it times out.

Am I missing something obvious in my config?

Thanks alot for any help!
