Thanks for responding, Rick.

Yes, after a while it resolved.

Yes, the mis-match of NS servers is broken.  They both answer
questions for the domain, so thing still work, but it's ugly.

Yes, that's what I was trying to figure out -- why my name server had
the right NS servers listed, yet wouldn't resolve the A record.

Yet, when asking the name server directly (e.g. @ns2.dreamhost.com) it
would response.  So, I was wondering if bind was doing some negative
caching.  My name server doesn't use any forwarders so queries the
names servers directly.

I suspect a better question for the Bind list.  Of course, it's sunny
now and the roof leak appears to have fixed itself. ;)
