Red face DNS ERROR resolving MX for... [in Zimbra setup]


Hi all,

Yet for many hours I'm struggling with configuring DNS for Zimbra. At the end of the setup I get the following prompt:

Code:
DNS ERROR resolving MX for immserv2.impactweb.XXX.be
It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
Change domain name? [Yes] yes
Create Domain: [immserv2.impactweb.XXX.be] zimbra.impactweb.XXX.be


DNS ERROR resolving MX for zimbra.impactweb.XXX.be
It is suggested that the domain name have an MX record configured in DNS
Re-Enter domain name? [Yes]
But everything I enter is 'rejected'. Seems there is no MX record for the zone I want to use, zimbra.impactweb.XXX.be

Everytime I try to dig, I get the SERVFAIL error, I also had the NOERROR error...
Code:
immserv2:/var/log# dig zimbra.eval.impactweb.XXX.be mx

; <<>> DiG 9.3.4-P1.1 <<>> zimbra.eval.impactweb.XXX.be mx
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 51338
;; flags: qr rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:
;zimbra.eval.impactweb.XXX.be.  IN      MX

;; Query time: 2 msec
;; SERVER: 192.168.0.92#53(192.168.0.92)
;; WHEN: Mon Mar 30 11:31:28 2009
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 46
This is the file I use called db.eval.impactweb.XXX.be, I know, at first it should be db.impactweb.XXX.be, right.
Code:
$TTL 3D
@       IN      SOA     ns.eval.impactweb.XXX.be. chantra.eval.impactweb.XXX.be. (
                        2009033001
                        8H                ; refresh, seconds
                        2H                ; retry, seconds
                        4W                ; expire, seconds
                        1D )              ; minimum, seconds
;
                NS      ns                ; Inet Address of name server
                MX      10 immserv2       ; Primary Mail Exchanger
;
ns              A       192.168.1.92
immserv2        A       192.168.1.97
I -tried- with following this tutorial http://wiki.zimbra.com/index.php?title=Split_dns because I want the DNS (BIND9) running on the same container. I'm using OpenVZ and Zimbra is installed on a container (VE).

Thanks in advance, I really hope to get this Zimbra thing running asap.
