I've just purchased a new domain name, and have set up hosting space, but the domain registrars wont allow me to change the dns servers until the server passes dns tests, but on zonecheck.fr I get a message :

---- fatal ----
f: The nameserver list doesn't match the given one

The given nameserver list (ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com) is not consistent with the one retrieved from the zone (ns1.mydomain.com).

ns2.mydomain.com/123.123.123.123

The dns records I have set up for the new domain are :

$ttl 38400
@   IN  SOA ns1.mydomain.com. hostmaster.mydomain.com. (
        2011071906
        10801
        3600
        604800
        38400 )
otherdomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
www.otherdomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
ftp.otherdomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
m.otherdomain.com.  IN  A   123.123.123.123
localhost.otherdomain.com.  IN  A   127.0.0.1
webmail.otherdomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
admin.otherdomain.com.  IN  A   123.123.123.123
mail.otherdomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
otherdomain.com.    IN  MX  5 mail.otherdomain.com.
otherdomain.com.    IN  TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:otherdomain.com ip4:123.123.123.123 ?all"

The new domain name uses my main dns servers from my other domain name which has private nameservers. The configuration is :

$ttl 38400
@   IN  SOA server1.mydomain.com. root.server1.mydomain.com. (
        1303077376
        10800
        3600
        604800
        38400 )
mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
www.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
ftp.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
m.mydomain.com. IN  A   123.123.123.123
server1.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
localhost.mydomain.com. IN  A   127.0.0.1
webmail.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
admin.mydomain.com. IN  A   123.123.123.123
mail.mydomain.com.  IN  A   123.123.123.123
mydomain.com.   IN  MX  5 mail.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com.   IN  TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:mydomain.com ip4:123.123.123.123 ?all"
mydomain.com.   IN  NS  ns1.mydomain.com.
mydomain.com.   IN  NS  ns2.mydomain.com.
ns1.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
ns2.mydomain.com.   IN  A   234.234.234.234
paypal.mydomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
www.paypal.mydomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
ftp.paypal.mydomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
m.paypal.mydomain.com.  IN  A   123.123.123.123
localhost.paypal.mydomain.com.  IN  A   127.0.0.1
webmail.paypal.mydomain.com.    IN  A   123.123.123.123
admin.paypal.mydomain.com.  IN  A   123.123.123.123
mail.paypal.mydomain.com.   IN  A   123.123.123.123
paypal.mydomain.com.    IN  MX  5 mail.paypal.mydomain.com.

What do I need to do to get otherdomain.com validated on zonecheck.fr?

it's much easier for others to help you - and to diagnose the issues - if you don't obscure your domain. you'll be publishing your dns publicly to the world, so there's really no security advantage to obscuring the actual dns. –  anastrophe Jul 19 '11 at 22:58

Have you acquired a copy of DNS and BIND ( oreilly.com/catalog/9780596100575 ) yet? If not this should be your first acquisition and read prior to trying to do ANYTHING involving DNS on the internet. This book is easily worth several times its purchase price. –  voretaq7 Jul 19 '11 at 23:01
    
Please add your domain, it's hard to tell you were you went wrong if we can't check ourselves. –  Jacob Jul 19 '11 at 23:06

I would say the first step would be to add NS records to otherdomain.com's zone. Second, fix up your zone file formatting to be columnised; reading in a zigzag is painful.

+1 on both counts: Add the NS records, and if it's still broken please update the question with columnized zone files. My brain melted trying to follow the current text above :-( –  voretaq7 Jul 19 '11 at 22:59
