i hear you :D 

It resolves ok when pointing against a US based Name server :

$ nslookup www.probsd.net ns1.octantis.com.au
Server:         ns1.octantis.com.au

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   www.probsd.net

It doesn't work when using my machine's named, which relies on Root name servers to get the info. the US server also uses root servers for resolution.

US box is linux based, mine is FBSD 7, in AU.

I checked with wireshark and i never get any reply from their servers. they seem to reply if I use my ISP's dns... 

oh well
