DNS Question/Help

From: Eric S.
Sent on: Sunday, December 12, 2010 5:34 PM
Here is a DNS challenge for the day (and I am fighting with GoDaddy)

Scenario:
You have designated MisterNameServer.com to be the Nameserver for the domain name mydomain.com
You have an A record set up for a domain name like: mydomain.com =>[masked]
You have a MX record mydomain.com =>[masked]

All is well.

You change the Nameserver to be MrSecondNS.com?
On that namerserver you duplicate the A record?mydomain.com =>[masked]
You do not re-create the old MX record, but instead you create a new one:?mydomain.com =>[masked]

Later in the day you use a handly online DNS lookup system (like?http://network-tools.com/) on mydomain.com.
It says the Nameserver is?MrSecondNS.com.
It also says there is an MX record?mydomain.com =>[masked]
But there is no A Record!

Questions: What are the possible scenarios as to why the A record would be missing?


Additional Info:?
You refresh the DNS record on?MrSecondNS.com "manually" and the A record immediately appears in?http://network-tools.com

Regards,
Eric
