Parent domain can't ping child domain

    Hey guys need some help! Not sure what broke, but my parent domain can no
    longer ping its child domain.

    If I ping (from any server including parent DCs) servername.child.parent.com
    I get a response. I can even ping DC.child.parent.com.

    But if I try to ping child.parent.com i get "could not find host
    child.parent.com"

    Of course there are KCC errors and other AD replications errors, I am sure
    positive are related to the parent not being able to resolve to the child
    domain.

    I did a deligation of the child zone under my parent DNS zone, but doesn't
    seem to be taking effect. I go through the deligation wizard, but the child
    zone isn't greyed out like it is delegated out. I can see the child DC DNS
    records.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!
    Mike

    Sorry let me point out I see A records in the zone that has been delegated out.

    Figured it out, I deleted the child domain zone and recreated a delgated zone
    (again) which put the NS records back in. Not sure why it broke, but its
    fixed now!
