Just when things seem to be making sense...

I'm running 2.1.5-STABLE and, prtty much right out of the box, everything
works fine. My current ISP provides the nameservers for my domain and the
FreeBSD box is defined as an A record. Mail to here works fine, in fact
the only thing that doesn't seem to work is a traceroute to a destination
*in* my domain doesn't work at all.

Not content with a system that just works okay, and looking ahead to
providing my own nameserver, I tried wading thru the man pages and
O'Reilly's 'DNS and BIND' book... and got thoroughly confused. My setup
is:
		
  <-> provider <-> frad <-> bbs.orionsys.com (205.148.224.2)
		   .1   <-> rigel.orionsys.com (.9) <-- FreeBSD

My current provider's nameservers are 199.190.65.3 and 198.67.33.102

---- My /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1		localhost localhost.rigel.orionsys.com
205.148.224.2		bbs.orionsys.com bbs
205.148.224.9		rigel.orionsys.com unix rigel
---- My /etc/namedb/named.boot

I -HUP'd namedb and now when I use nslookup (output folded):

> server rigel.orionsys.com
> ls -d rigel.orionsys.com
[Rigel.orionsys.com]
 rigel.orionsys.com.            SOA   Rigel.orionsys.com \

 rigel.ORIONSYS.COM.            MX    10   rigel..orionsys.com.rigel.orionsys.com
 1                              PTR   rigel.orionsys.com            
 www2                           CNAME rigel.orionsys.com.rigel.orionsys.com
 rigel                          A     205.148.224.9
 rigel.orionsys.com.            SOA   Rigel.orionsys.com \ 
   root.Rigel.orionsys.com. (960909 3600 300 3600000 3600)

Needless to say, this is pretty hosed up, and nothing I've tried has been
able to stop the 'doubled' domain. What *am* I doing wrong?

Heeeeeeeellllllppppppp.....
