server can't find mydomain.com: SERVFAIL


hi all,
my os is ubuntu and i have install "bind9 dnsutils".
I think, i have a problem with my dns configuration. This is what i get when i type a few commands for checking my dns, where my full hostname is server mydomain.com and ip is 192.168.1.1.


[root@server root]# host server
Host server not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

[root@server root]# host 192.168.1.1
Host 1.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

[root@server root]# host mydomain.com
Host mydomain.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)

[root@server root]# nslookup server
