Getting an error on a simple DNS configuration

I put together a simple working DNS server and called it new-dns2 with the
IP address of My configuration files follow:

[root at new-dns2 ~]# cat /etc/named.conf
options {
         directory "/var/named";
zone "" {
        type master;
        file "db.127.0.0";
[root at new-dns2 ~]# cat /var/named/db.127.0.0
@               IN      SOA (
                                1       ; Serial
                                8H      ; Refresh
                                2H      ; Retry
                                4W      ; Expire
                                1D)     ; Minimum TTL
1                       PTR     localhost.
[root at new-dns2 ~]#

So, when I query my new DNS server from itself (, it
resolves the name to an IP, but when I query my new DNS server from another
Linux box, it fails with the following error message.

[root at new-dns2 ~]# nslookup
Non-authoritative answer:
[root at new-dns2 ~]#

[root at oragrid01 ~]# nslookup
** server can't find REFUSED
[root at oragrid01 ~]#

I have stopped FireWall on new-dns2, my DNS server:

[root at new-dns2 ~]# service iptables status
iptables: Firewall is not running.
[root at new-dns2 ~]#

Can someone please tell me what might be the problem?

Many thanks in advance and have a wonderful day/night.
