Problems with BIND operating with Windows XP with dns zones for eth0 aliases

Here's my network:

Slackware 9.1 computer running bind and apache 1.3
Apache is serving 3 vhosts:
eth0 -, linuxserver
eth0:0 -, fredsserver
eth0:1 -, jonysserver
Bind has these master zones (excluding reverse zones)
linuxserver -
with subdomains:
fred.linuxserver -
jony.linuxserver -
fredsserver -
jonysserver -
with subdomains:
server.lan -
<username>.lan - pointing to each individual user's computer

My SUSE 9.0 Professional laptop

Various Windows XP clients

Here's the problem:

No problems on my laptop, can access all domains fine - however the windows xp clients can only access linuxserver and subdomains, and the lan subdomains.

Any ideas? Tia

usually zones are not used to resolve an ip but to define a domain in which you'll have records of type 'A' to associate an ip to a name. I'm not sure to understand your configuration, could you provide us with the named.conf file ?

I'll second that. It looks like a truly bizarre BIND configuration. Please paste the named.conf along with each zone file (revserse isn't necessary).
