At the CH servers, things are configured correctly:

vggr.ch.		3600	IN	NS	ns2.serverdns.ch.
vggr.ch.		3600	IN	NS	ns1.serverdns.ch.
;; Received 107 bytes from in 53 ms

However, over at ns1.serverdns.ch, these four new nameservers are added, and
they all don't work.

www.vggr.ch.		14400	IN	CNAME	vggr.ch.
vggr.ch.		14400	IN	A
vggr.ch.		86400	IN	NS	ns.ch-datacenter.com.
vggr.ch.		86400	IN	NS	ns.us-datacenter.com.
vggr.ch.		86400	IN	NS	ns2.ch-datacenter.com.
vggr.ch.		86400	IN	NS	ns2.us-datacenter.com.
;; Received 224 bytes from in 88 ms

I suggest fixing the nameserver records over at ns1.serverdns.ch ;-)

good luck!
