refresh: non-authoritative answer from master

How do I make ns1 an authoritative master name server?

The slave server claims "non-authoritative answer from master"

I have a non-authoritative master name server. And, of coures, I want an
authoritative one so that the slave will accept the transfer and
replication of records (which is currently not happening).

Question? Do I have to contact networksolutions (who is the Registrar of
this domain) to make this name servers ip address an authoratitve name
server?

I moved the origial master (ns) and renamed it (ns1). Also, while doing
so, I changed the original name servers record ip address via the
Registrar web interface. I recall that it used to be: you had to send
email to the 'registrar' for proper designation and/or declairation of
name servers with network solutions. Is this still the case?

Will I have to wait the 24-48 hours (as claimed by networksolutions) for
changes to commit for proper dns?

I have tried the following:

rndc refresh webmedianow.com
named-checkzone webmedianow.com /var/named/webmedianow.com.hosts

Help Please. Thank You
