Never heard of them z.

What are zone files?

The current worldwide Domain Name System (DNS) consists of 13 zone servers. The 12 voluntary zone server operators pull information from NSI's 'A' root server to receive the definitive location of Internet addresses or domain names used for email and websites across the globe.

I found this snippet here [corporate.verisign.com]. Go there for the full story.

be sure to make the changes in both the "master account" AND in the specific domain name record. The user interface is a little tricky but it will work. Best is to make the changes then exit the site and return. If the changes "stick" when you return to the site, you will know they were made. It still takes a couple of days for these changes to propogate across the authoritative roots.

Hope this helps!
