Cool dns problems

back from holidays I had a lot of problems with dns and postfix
it seems some user added a sub domain
postfix stopped because he did not know the protocol www2
dns also stopped but I was lucky to have a second dns server.
After a lot of struggle I solved issues above.

Now some remaining questions...

How can I remove warning below.
WARNING. The parent servers (I checked with are not providing glue for all your nameservers. This means that they are supplying the NS records (, but not supplying the A records (, which can cause slightly slower connections, and may cause incompatibilities with some non-RFC-compliant programs. This is perfectly acceptable behavior per the RFCs. This will usually occur if your DNS servers are not in the same TLD as your domain (for example, a DNS server of "" for the domain ""). In this case, you can speed up the connections slightly by having NS records that are in the same TLD as your domain.

This is how my looks like.
What should I add and how can it be done in ispconfig?

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA (
2006082303 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
28800 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
2419200 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
NS ; Inet Address of name serv$
NS ; Inet Address of name serv$

MX 10
mischa MX 10 A
www A
localhost A
mail A


Will it be possible in the future to add a third dns server?
And how to add default entries (I now need to add to every .nl domain a
a record localhost (strange sidn? and a MX backup mail server entry, SPF records.. etc..)


Sorry for the many questions!!!

many thanks (and I need a break again)
