besides that it's not even clar if that zones are meant to be public 
and/or both public nameservers are really pointing to the machine with 
named in question


don't run public servers before doing the basic homework


this is a NO-GO - they need to be different machines which shouldn't 
live on the same network at all but never be the same machine

Domain NS records 	Nameserver records returned by the parent servers are:   ['']   [TTL=172800]   ['']   [TTL=172800] was kind enough to give us that information.


and *that* is why you need *at least* two independent nameservers for a 

Mismatched NS records 	WARNING: One or more of your nameservers did not 
return any of your NS records.
Error 	DNS servers responded 	ERROR: One or more of your nameservers did 
not respond:
The ones that did not respond are:


Multiple Nameservers 	ERROR: Looks like you have less than 2 
nameservers. According to RFC2182 section 5 you must have at least 3 
nameservers, and no more than 7. Having 2 nameservers is also ok by me.


Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers 	You should already 
know that your NS records at your nameservers are missing, so here it is 


SOA 	Error 	SOA record	No valid SOA record came back!
MX 	Error 	MX Records	Oh well, I did not detect any MX records so you 
probably don't have any and if you know you should have then they may be 
missing at your nameservers!
WWW 	Error 	WWW A Record 	ERROR: I could not get any A records for!

(I only do a cache request, if you recently added a WWW A record, it 
might not show up here.)
