Default Dns issues

I recently moved from plesk back to ISPconfig for the second time, and once again I cant get DNS working. The problem this time seems to be different.

I have two domains(and others, but Ill worry about them after these two work)

appalhost.info and xenotype.net

My registrar is 1and1, and the way Ive always done it is to use two subdomains of appalhost.info (ns1.appalhost.info and ns2.appalhost.info) as my nameservers. These I create at the registrar and are not on my server. The A record of the subdomains point to each of my server's two ips (207.210.77.119 and 65.254.53.154)

Works in plesk fine. I got it working for ISPConfig once before.

Ive created both domains on my server, the nameservers are correct for each.

Yet Im getting no dns for them at all. Whois says the nameservers are right, but they wont work.

I have a shallow understanding of dns in many places so forgive me for any blatant stupidity.

Here is the output of netstat -tap
Code:

And the contents of hosts
Code:
127.0.0.1  svr.appalhost.info 207.210.77.119 65.254.53.154 svr server localhost localhost.localdomain
All services are up and running fine including bind.

What am I missing?

What happens if you do a:

Code:
 # host www.appalhost.info 207.210.77.119
This way your checking the DNS server direct.

Error messages from bind are generally in the /var/logs/messages

Code:
# nslookup www.appalhost.info 207.210.77.119
That should work or there's more wrong then just your DNS...

Im missing the dig command too. Im running this server on a virtuozzo VPS, so their image may be missing some parts that I need to yum, but I dont know what the yum command to install dig is.

On Debian the package is called dnsutils. You can search for the appropriate Fedora package like this:
Code:
yum search dnsutils
yum search dig
