Default DNS not working as expecting

When testing MyDNS functionality I came across something weird and am looking for an explantion. I am sure that it is not really a MyDNS problem per say just something weird.

If I do an nslookup from the internet to the box that is running MyDNS for the host name I get a non-existiant domain error.


*** MYDNSNAME can't find example.com: Non-existent domain
If I look up say www.example.com I get a returned address as expected. So why do I get a non-existant domain error? What am I missing?

Did you configure example.com in MyDNS? example.com and www.example.com are different and independent from each other.

Yes I did configure example.com correctly. What I failed to realize is that the root zone does not automaticly get and entry you need to add it by hand. So in the records section of mydnsconfig I needed to add a record for example.com. That fixed everything. It was one of those ID10T errors.
