Default ISPConfig DNS Settings for multiple domains (Hosted on 1 IP)

Hi guys,
I`ve set up my ISPConfig box but have some questions about DNS / Mail configuration. Please also (cause I`m a noob) check if my configuration is corrct).

I have 2 domains hosted on one machine with 1 IP:
ng-host.de (named first.de below) and second.com

My servers hostname is srv.first.de:
cat /etc/mailname

cat /etc/hostname

hostname -f
In /etc/postfix/main.cf I have:
myhostname = srv.first.de
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = srv.first.de, localhost, localhost.localdomain
> My primary nameserver (ns.first.de and ns.second.com) is my own server. The secondary is hosted at my provider.
> There are glue records registered at my provider for ns.first.de and ns.second.com which point to my servers IP. For first.de I`ve also set up a IPv6 glue.
> There is a reverse pointer for my IP pointing at srv.first.de
> Everything is working just fine, mail, web, ... no problems but if I make a check at dnsqueries.com/en/domain_check.php I get some weird errors I can`t deal with. Could you please tell me what I`ve done wrong?

Query for ng-host.de (first.de):
1. NS A records at nameservers : Your nameserver do not include A records when asked for your NS records.

2. All nameservers report identical NS records: The NS records at your nameservers aren't identical.

3. Differing MX-A records: I have searched for differing IPs for your MX records between what are declaring your NS and the authoritative NS for the MX records. The check failed because
in sdns2.ovh.net. i can't find srv.ng-host.de.[5.XXX.7.XXX]
in ns.ng-host.de. i can't find srv.ng-host.de.
My named (bind) configuration for first.de:
cat /etc/bind/pri.first.de
$TTL 3600
@ IN SOA ns.first.de. hostmaster.first.de. (
2014081219 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
7200 ; refresh, seconds
900 ; retry, seconds
1209600 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

first.de. 86400 NS ns.provider.net.
first.de. 86400 NS ns.first.de.
first.de. 86400 TXT "v=spf1 a mx -all"
For second.com it is:
cat /etc/bind/pri.second.com
$TTL 3600
@ IN SOA ns.second.com. hostmaster.first.de. (
2014081220 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #

86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

second.com. 86400 A 5.XXX.7.XXX
ns 86400 A 5.XXX.7.XXX
ns.second.com. 86400 A 5.XXX.7.XXX
www 86400 A 5.XXX.7.XXX
pop3 86400 CNAME srv.first.de.
second.com. 86400 MX 10 srv.first.de.
second.com. 86400 NS ns.second.com.
