Do you see the server in a netstat -a???

You should see it on TCP domain (which is port 53) and UDP domain..

You say it works when local..  Meaning when you are on the machine and 
you do a host domain.com, it returns ok??  But when on another host and 
you do a host domain.com ns1.server.com, it doesnt respond??
