You probably didn't configure the resolver library correctly.
In /etc/resolv.conf, you need to add the name server entries:
Pinging the name servers using their IP addresses doesn't
test the resolver at all.
While that is the most likely cause, it is also possible that
you just bought a domain (or changed its records), and it
can take up to 72 hours for the DNS entries to propagate
throught the net.
Another reason is that you (or your net admin) blocked
ICMP at the firewall level, so you can't expect a reply
to a ping. You can test this easily by pinging, say,
www.altavista.com or another site that replies to pings.
Other reasons are possible too.
