    Well, at some point it has to; if you're running you own DNS (not
handing the job off to the ISP, for example) it becomes a question of
who's actually doing the lookup.  In my case, it's always handing it
off- I *have* to have two other nameservers, because mine only looks at
the zones I master. (Things like localhost, altavista.local, the
192.168.1.* subnet, and such.)

    With as much time as I've expended, and with as many features I've
used from the manual...it should be working, but it's not.

    Thanks for the reply!
