was it always non-authoritative?
because non-authoritative means that he gets his answer from somewhere else (so your server looked in his records first but didn't find anything, so he forwarded that request)
so perhaps you start looking in your records ?

(if i get this wrong, feel free to correct me )

so the problem is
Code:
mail.foo.in canonical name = ghs.google.com.
ghs.google.com canonical name = ghs.l.google.com.
Name: ghs.l.google.com
Address: 72.14.203.121
Quote:
A canonical name is the properly denoted host name of a computer or network server. A CNAME specifies an alias or nickname for a canonical host name record in a domain name system (DNS) database. In programming, the term "canonical" means "according to the rules." The DNS is the standard method of defining the locations of sites on the Internet, particularly Web sites.
maybe take a look in your CNAME records?
or is this also normal?
perhaps you say what actually the problem is? what isn't normal from the code you gave us?
