Default DNS Error : named-sdb dead but pid file exists

Hi All
I configured a DNS on FC8. I followed the howtoforge tutorial

when i try to resolve from another machine (a machine other than the one which i configured DNS), it is not able to resolve the same.

[root@localhost ~]# ping
ping: unknown host

If i ping it from the same machine on which DNS is configured it is pinging.

[root@localhost]# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.036 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.048 ms

--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 received, 0% packet loss, time 999ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.036/0.042/0.048/0.006 ms

When i check for the status of my namd service its giving the following output.

[root@localhost ~]# /etc/init.d/named status
version: 9.5.0b3
number of zones: 16
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
soa queries in progress: 0
query logging is OFF
recursive clients: 0/0/1000
tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running
named-sdb dead but pid file exists
[root@localhost ~]#

what does this named-sdb dead but pid file exists means ?

if i do telnet 53 from a remote machine its giving the following error.

telnet 53
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
[root@localhost ~]#

if i do telnet localhost 53 from the same machine where DNS is configured its connecting to port 53.

Why is it happening so ?

Whats wrong with my DNS configuration ?

Looking forward to hear from you

Thanks and Regards
