I am running Ubuntu 16.04, Apache2, Bind9, Postfix, Mailman

I have set up a dns server on my system but keep running into problems 
with named-checkzone

This is the errors that I get when I run named-checkzone on my reverse 
zone file, the actual zone file serves up ok.

This is the output of nslookup faithwalk.ca

Any help would be appreciated. I have searched out RR errors and nothing 
seemed either to apply or work when I tried the suggestions. I am also 
puzzled as to why nslookup does not find my domain.
