Default DNS Master/Slave - unexpected rcode servfail

Hello,

I'm having some troubles setting up a master/slave configuration for my DNS. Right now I have a Redhat server (dnsnsbrhgate.linux.cs460) and a Windows server (dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460) and I am trying to set the Windows DNS up as a slave on the Redhat server. My named.conf looks like this (snipped to important part):

Code:
zone "linux.cs460." IN {
     type master;
     file "linux.cs460.zone";
};

zone "10.68.192.in-addr.arpa." IN {
     type master;
     file "192.168.10.zone";
};

zone "windows.cs460." IN {
     type slave;
     file "windows.cs460.zone";
     masters { 192.168.10.120 ; };
};
I have a windows.cs460.zone file where all my other zone files are, however it is empty (I am under the impression that this does not need to be filled in?)

The error that I am getting when I try to ping dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460 is:

Code:
ping: unknown host dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460
When I restart named.conf my logs show this:

Code:
zone windows.cs460/IN: refresh: unexpected rcode (SERVFAIL) from master 192.168.10.120#53 (source 0.0.0.0#0)
The results of me digging dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460 is:

Code:
; <<>> DIG 9.3.4-P! <<>> dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460
;; global options:     printcmd
;; Got answer
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: query, status: SERVFAIL, id: 21161
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION
; dnsnsbwingate.windows.cs460.   IN   A

;; Query time 6 msec

;; WHEN Mon Nov 24 12:20:27 2008
;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 45
Any ideas?

Did you setup the slave zone with ISPConfig?

Using ISPConfig on Redhat? Or on Windows? No, I don't recall issuing any ISPConfig commands...

The master for windows.cs460 is linux.cs460, on Redhat.

But you've configured linux.cs460 as a slave for that zone:
Code:
zone "windows.cs460." IN {
     type slave;
     file "windows.cs460.zone";
     masters { 192.168.10.120 ; };
};
