The SOA syntax hat to be going slightly different
than eMail addresses normally do; you need to
replace the "@" in "admin@..." by a dot (".").

named-checkzone is your friend. It will load and
parse your zonefile exactly like named would do
and complain more or less rigorous about any
syntax issues.

You declared ns.clickonline beeing responsible for
your domain, but forget to assign any IP to this host-
name:

Simply add this line

ns IN A 10.0.0.6

to the zone file, don't forget to increase the
SOA's serial, then issue

rndc reload clickonline.net

and report if it's working now.

Just to make it clear: the resolv.conf on your BIND host
has nothing to do with the way your other workstations
will resolve their DNS requests.
