actually i think i found the problem, the domain i tried to add was already being served by another provider it seem bind decides not to serve it as a result. This conclusion stems from me creating multiple other dns entries that it resolves, i then edit one of those that it responded for to reflect to one i needed and it resulted in it no responding to that query again.
could this be a untold(at least to me) feature of bind to not allow you to become authoritative for a domain that exist somewhere else?
(btw the domain in question will eventually be controlled by my servers, however before this is done my servers will need to be able to resolve for said domain, at this point my domain master will add my ns entries for said domain)
