Yeah, that's likely to be a problem. Those "test" lines have
(inadvertantly?) renamed an A record and your MX record from the name
"example.com" to the name "test.example.com", and then "hid" them under
the delegation for test.example.com (since all non-glue records are
served from the child zone, not the parent; those records would only be
visible on a zone transfer).
Hopefully you understand that in master-zone syntax, leading whitespace
"inherits" the last non-whitespace owner name. That's why those 2
records got implicitly renamed, since putting an owner name of "test"
above them caused them to inherit that name instead of "@". As a general
rule, you want to put all of your apex records at the top of the zone
file, and add new stuff at the end of the zone file, so as to completely
avoid such whitespace-inheritance "accidents".
