the IP 126.96.36.199 is what shows up on my domain registrars website under the "Total DNS Contral". This is not my external IP Address. My external address is 188.8.131.52.
That's the problem. The records must point directly to your external IP and not via a forward.

Also, your ISPConfig server(s) are not authoritative for the domain. The authoritative nameservers are ns03 and ns04.domaincontrol.com.
