Thanks Peter. I have changed the PTR record in the reverse zone. It 
checked out ok. The authoritative server is actually listed five lines 
above the commented out line. I simply left that in there to show what 
changes I have made in case I needed to reverse something. I still get 
the same cannot find from nslookup. I can ping outside and inside the 
network, cannot do nslookup from outside or inside the network. ping 
does give me the correct zone serial number.
