Strange DNS problem or ... ?

Hello all,

This is configuration I have:
Server A is DNS server which has dns entries (beside other entries) for server B like this: A
forum CNAME
test1 CNAME

On Server B I'm running Apache with virtual hosts for "forum" and "test1". goes to /home/forum and goes to /home/test1.

Here is the problem. Forum is not working on every computer that is trying to access it around the world. Because everything is working like it should from my computer I have tried to access forum from some public proxy. The weird thing is that it is working from time to time, not always.
Tcpdump says that connection is not even reaching server on port 80 when that proxy is trying to open forum.
I must say that is working always. Also when I move forum domain in Virtual Host to load from /home/test1 it is not working either.

Where can be problem that some of users can reach forum and some of them not?

Tnx in advance

Do you have any other authoritative name servers?

if you run 'dig @' (assuming you have dig, if not: nslookup -querytype=A
) do the google public DNS servers resolve OK?

Dave, thank you.
I found where the problem was. Serials were not the same on the master and slave servers, so slave servers didn't receive updates. Everything is working now.
