  I'm not sure that you can safely say this.  From what I can see,
  you seem to be using nslookup, which (in trying to be "helpful")
  hides so much information that you cannot depend on the results
  it gives.

  I suggest you use the zonemaster tool (https://zonemaster.net/) to
  run a comprehensive series of tests against the zone(s) which are
  giving you trouble.

  Best regards,
