 For MNAME in the SOA record you should have your primary nameserver, 
 like ns1.donaldbjames.info. It definitely should be one of the 
 nameservers of the domain, one of these:

 donaldbjames.info.      86332   IN      NS      b.ns.buddyns.com.
 donaldbjames.info.      86332   IN      NS      ns1.twisted4life.com.
 donaldbjames.info.      86332   IN      NS      ns1.donaldbjames.info.
 donaldbjames.info.      86332   IN      NS      ns2.afraid.org.

 The SOA should be something like:

 donaldbjames.info.      86400   IN      SOA     ns1.donaldbjames.info. 
 donaldbjames.suddenlinkmail.com. 2010122811 10800 3600 604800 3600

 As for the recursor and auth server running at the same time, you must 
 have them listen on two separate IP addresses if you want to run them 
 both on port 53. This would be the recommended way.
 You could also have pdns-recursor listen on another port, say 53000 and 
 then set the recursor= option in the auth server to forward requests to 
 the recursor. This is not recommended but you can do it if you have a 
 small site, or you just use the recursor on localhost. But then you 
 could bind the recursor to and the auth server to whatever 
 other IP address you have on the box.
