well, it turns out, that i totally "newb'd" myself.  long story short...

i build myself an emergency DNS server, and since i planned only to use it 
while my main DNS servers were down (and, when they are down, they are both 
usually down at the same time), i didnt replicate my reverse zones over to 
it, only my forward zones.  turns out, nfs requires the reverse record or it 
doesnt seem to work right anymore.

in my typical fashion... i spent days troubleshooting all the most complicated 
configurations that could be throwing me a monkey wrench (culminating with a 
reinstall of my VMware Server)... instead of starting with the easiest thing 
first.

as i laugh as myself,
Jonathan
