bad zone transfer request of reverse addr zone

I get this for all my secondaries for my reverse domain:

client view external: bad zone transfer request: 
'': non-authoritative zone (NOTAUTH): 23 

I don't get this for my forward domain and the SOA for both are 
similarly structured.  For the reverse I have:

     zone "" {
         type master;
         file "";
         allow-transfer { httslaves; };

@    IN    SOA (
             2h )

@    IN    NS
     IN    NS
     IN    NS
     IN    NS

Is this a case of my ISP not properly setting up the delegation?  I have 
tested from the outside and have no trouble resolving, say 
to onlo, so they have something right (they still have not done the 
delegation for my zone).
