Am I missing something here??

I am confused, why if I do testing the domain (komputroller.com) that host
in our new DNS servers and the domain (komputroller.ca) that STILL host in
our ISP DNS, show significance different. Of course not the record/IP/ttl
value, etc but like doesn't show SOA, A record and MX record for
komputroller.com, is that because I use W2K DNS and ISP use Unix Bind??
If i check using www.dnsreport.com, looks like it shows ok.
Could somebody clarify this, please??
Thanks.

Are these the NS records for your domain?
komputroller.ca. 604800 IN NS ns.uunet.ca.
komputroller.ca. 604800 IN NS ns2.uunet.ca.

If they aren't and they are in cache somewhere as your NS records they are
going to be there until TTL runs out or the default ttl of the server they
are on runs out.
Most of the A records in your domain have a ttl of one day, so if you change
an IP it could take up to one day for the new IP to get updated in a DNS
where the old IP is cached.

One day is a pretty extreme TTL for an A record you might want to consider
reducing the ttl to one hour on the A records.

Actually, normally it is, but at one point I was using 7 days for spme A
records since I figure it wasn't going to change for a long time. The only
time I reduced it was when I changed IPs of the resource then put it back up
after the change. It reduced query hits, especially with this one site I was
hosting for this one customer that was getting over 10,000 hits per day.

J> but like doesn't show SOA, A record and MX record for komputroller.com,

"like" ?

J> is that because I use W2K DNS and ISP use Unix Bind??

No. It's because the "com." content DNS servers provide a complete
answer to "ANY" queries for "komputroller.com.", instead of a referral,
whereas the "ca." content DNS servers provide a partial answer ending in
a referral to "ANY" queries for "komputroller.ca.". The complete answer
provided by the "com." content DNS servers simply doesn't contain all of
the information provided in the complete answer that one would get if
one queries the "komputroller.com." content DNS servers. (But remember:
"ANY" is not "ALL".)
