Hallo,
if I use "host" I get:

[michelle.konzack@tp570:~] host -t MX tp570.private.tamay-dogan.net
tp570.private.tamay-dogan.net mail is handled by 10 mail.private.tamay-dogan.net.

[michelle.konzack@tp570:~] host -t A tp570.private.tamay-dogan.net
tp570.private.tamay-dogan.net has address 192.168.0.112

[michelle.konzack@tp570:~] host -t A mail.private.tamay-dogan.net
mail.private.tamay-dogan.net has address 192.168.0.70

[michelle.konzack@tp570:~] host -t PTR 192.168.0.70
70.0.168.192.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer mail.private.tamay-dogan.net.

OK, this is working, but with "dig" I get

??? -- What is now broken?

I have this error since I have migrated my physikal separated DNS-Server
to my central File-Server (Quad-Xeon) which run now alone.

It seems there is something going wrong with the migration but I do not
find the error...

Any ideas?

Ok my OS is Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 Etch and I use

dnsutils:
