Cannot figure out what is wrong here... must be something simple but after sitting in airplanes the last 40 hours and it's 2am...

Only when I comment out the two lines in the end of the named.harriot, it goes through and BIND load the zone. With those two lines, get the following:

C:\DNS\etc\namedb>named-checkzone named.harriot
dns_master_load: named.harriot:33: CNAME and other data
dns_rdata_fromtext: named.harriot:35: syntax error
zone loading from master file named.harriot failed: CNAME and other data
zone not loaded due to errors.

;    File:      named.harriot
