Seen from here (.DE) the NS for both refuse to answer
queries, so they are indeed not authoritative:

        $ dig ns

        ; <<>> DiG 9.6-ESV-R4-P3 <<>> ns
        ; (1 server found)
        ;; global options: +cmd
        ;; Got answer:
        ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: REFUSED, id: 8528

I assume you've reloaded (reconfig'ed) your master, so maybe you've
mistakenly added the new zones to the wrong view? ;-)
