Nameserver ns16.zoneedit.com returns SERVFAIL

System Administrators,

As of Tuesday evening, ns16.zoneedit.com (one of the nameservers
for the humbug.org.au zone) is returning the server failure code.

The link http://p8e.zwit.org/ redirects to the DNSReport.com page
showing this issue (link should work for 6-7 days).

Just using dig shows the error:

$ dig @ns16.zoneedit.com humbug.org.au ns

Mark, your short link is broken. You might like to fix it.

Re: broken short link:

I'm not sure what sent wrong with the first one - it's also broken for me. When it redirects, for me, the real URL is in the address bar with junk before it. Try http://aqd.zwit.org/ instead.

Here's the full link: http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/dnsreport/?domain=humbug.org.au&format=raw&loadresults=true&token=1021d408453a58ea3c21600527c08010

In any event, there's already a PDF of the page attached.

It seems the address of ns16.zoneedit.com had changed from what we had in the named.conf.options file. I have corrected named.conf.options and now ns16.zoneedit.com is answering queries correctly.
