[Pdns-users] Allowing secondary DNS server

In addition to my first post:

I think I found out how he did this redirect: the previous provider is advertising the bHosted.nl DNS servers (ns1.bhosted.nl and ns3.bhosted.nl) by setting these DNS servers in the NS records. Is this an allowed and supported configuration as the root servers are still advertising the DNS servers of the previous provider?

Kind regards,

  I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but just ignore it if it's not.

  At this moment I'm running a primary and secondary DNS server with PDNS, both the latest release and with MySQL. Two days ago (friday) a .nl domain is transferred to my hosting company and the previous provider is asked to run secondary for the domain for a few days longer. Because this previous provider already removed the domain from his DNS servers, he somehow configured a "DNS redirect" to my primary DNS server. I was expecting that he would run as secondary in the way my own secondary DNS server is configured.

  Unfortunatly, this "redirect" is not working and the domain is off-line at this moment ( untill my DNS servers are activated by the SIDN (monday morning) ).

  Does somebody know how this previous provider has configured his DNS server and why this configuration is not working? The last time I spoke to the previous provider he told me that my primary DNS server is misconfigured, but he couldn't explain what was wrong. I've tried changing the settings in PDNS, but nothing seems to work.

  The domain is inqa.nl, the new primary DNS server is ns1.bhosted.nl. I'm not able to find out what the old DNS servers are. The dnsreport.com site gives some interesting error messages: http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=inqa.nl

  Kind regards,
