query issue

Hi hoping someone with more DNS experience then me can help me figure out
this strange issue.


I have a domain kingstonmass.org that I'm having problems resolving anything
for from one NS server but it work from the other. The issue seems to be
when I query for kingstonmass.org I get stuck on the org servers however
this only happens for that domain all other .org domains that I tried have


Here is an example from tcpdump


11:03:39.305895 IP ns1.frv.ma.meganet.net.43514 >
c0.org.afilias-nst.org.domain:  54553 [1au] A? www.dreamphotos.org. (48)

11:03:39.343982 IP c0.org.afilias-nst.org.domain >
ns1.frv.ma.meganet.net.43514:  54553- 0/6/1 (591)


However when I query kingstonmass.org I don't see any returned answer and it
eventually times out.


11:03:34.310559 2002:c690:8cc6:c:206:5bff:fe8e:334d.54795 >
b2.org.afilias-nst.org.domain:  54297 NS? kingstonmass.org. (34)


Again when querying this with my other DNS server it works fine. On the
server I'm having issues with I can ping all the pingable org servers and
the NS servers for the domain in question. 



The odd thing is with host I can see the NS records for the domain but with
dig it doesn't work. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two
commands. Also using host I cant get an MX listing.  I'm hoping someone has
an idea.


Thanks, Paul
