It turned out domain registrar had two different menus for a) editing a zone and b) setting nameservers. It is solved now.

Obviously. The registry records have a different name servers (ns1.r01.ru) than what I get from the public DNS (ns1.ihc.ru). The question still remains how come VPS provider SOA and NS records have preference over domain registrar zone records? dig thetabox.ru SOA gives me back this ANSWER SECTION: thetabox.ru. 42595 IN SOA ns1.ihc.ru. info.ihc.ru. 2011081101 10800 3600 604800 3600 and yet, ihc.ru is not a registrar.

I thought I understand this. I even checked O'Reilly's "DNS and Bind" book. What I don't understand is what forces (or should force, but does not) ru-registry to select the DNS zone from my domain name registrar in favor of DNS zone of my hosting provider, while both have equally valid SOA records.

nslookup returns the records from the VPS hosting provider, which is a) non-authoritative and b) incorrect. The original question is what indicates the authoritativeness of zone delegation other than an SOA record?

The problem is that dig thetabox.ru SOA gives me back the VPS provider records, while the registrar's records indicate (dig @ns1.r01.ru thetabox.ru SOA) a different and correct SOA. Should I wait another 48 hours?
