I tried from a different computer on a different network today to access my two test sites. One, prizepalace.co.uk came up first time. The other, badbison.com failed the first two times quoting dns error, unable to find host.. clicked retry a third time and it came up no problems and has done ever since.
Email is still behaving very odd.. someone sent me an email from a yahoo email account last night. It never arrived and returned the following message to the sender:
Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message to the following address.

However, this morning someone sent me an email from a yahoo account and it came through fine with no reported errors.
I get the feeling one of the name servers are not working properly and it's purely chance which name server is used for the look up. Is there anyway to tell which is working properly? According to ISP config3 I have MX and A records setup for the account.
It looks like this:
A badbison.com. 188.8.131.52 0
A mail 184.108.40.206 0
A www 220.127.116.11 0
MX badbison.com. mail.badbison.com. 10
NS badbison.com. ns1.badbison.co.uk. 0
NS badbison.com. ns10.schlundtech.de. 0
Is there a way I could test to see if my name server gives out the correct details and then a way to test to see if NS10.schlundtech.de holds the correct details?
