Yep. And this is just a test zone to see if I can make delgating a /24
work. This also is not the server it will run on once working, however
the other servers I have tried doing this same thing on come up with the
same error.

yes

It is my understanding that since I am delegating a /24 out of a /16, I
have to do that from the parent, IE the 155.10.in-addr.arpa zone.
(What few resources I can find, including DNS & Bind seem to hint at that)

How else do you delegate a /24 to a different nameserver?

no.
