Question DNSmasq installed, DNS not resolving


I installed DNSmasq.. Then I broke something and had to adjust some settings in my named.conf.options file so that DNSmasq would not return error: "failed to bind".


auth-nxdomain no; # conform to RFC1035
listen-on {; }; #attempt to fix dnsmasq
listen-on-v6 { ip6-localhost; };

So now DNSmasq runs without error, but when I set hosteddomain.tld to ns1.serverdomain.tld and ns2.serverdomain.tld, I get a Page Load Error like the domain isn't resolving. I believe I've done everything I can to configure properly:

1.) Installed DNSmasq per
(have double checked all config files)

2.) Setup host summary at GoDaddy per

2.) Set up DNS in ISPconfig 3 per screen shots in

4.) Setup hosteddomain.tld in 'Sites'.

3.) Now, when I..
dig @ns1.serverdomain.tld any hosteddomain.tld


; <<>> DiG 9.5.1-P2 <<>> @ns1.serverdomain.tld any hosteddomain.tld
; (1 server found)
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 57766

;hosteddomain.tld. IN ANY

;; Query time: 16 msec
;; SERVER: *serverip*#53(*serverip*)
;; WHEN: Tue Jul 7 22:07:31 2009
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 37

This appears to not answer? Domain does not resolve. I think I'm out of things to configure, and I believe I've configured everything properly. Should this work or am I off base completely on running DNS in ISPconfig 3?

I know this is strictly DNS related because if I switch to use GD default nameservers the site resolves.

Thanks, I have found all the support here to be incredibly helpful.
