we are running powerdns on our main nameservers right now, but they are 
not returning authoritve for any of the domains.. eg..

dig @ns1.dreamhost.com domain.com

; <<>> DiG 9.2.2 <<>> @ns1.dreamhost.com plasmid.aldevron.com
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:

;domain.com.          IN      A

domain.com.   14400   IN      A

i have just used domain.com to hide a customers identity. I have tried 
setting the master field in the powerdns database but that didnt work. 
right now zones look like this..

| id     | name         | master        | last_check | type   | notified_serial | account |

| 130064 | domain.com | |       NULL | NATIVE |            NULL | NULL    |

all have correct SOA and NS records. Any ideas on how i get this to start 
being authoritative for these domains? im sure its something simple. 
Thanks guys!
