Default Zone problem

Hi all,

I have bought a VPS and want to host my website on this machine.. the company where I bought it provided me with nameservers ips and hostnames for them so hostname for first nameserver is NS149210.RAPIDVPS.NET and it corresponds to and hostname for secondary nameserver is NS15135.RAPIDVPS.NET and it corresponds to this ip . I've installed caching-nameservers package and I'm using Centos 5 and here is my named.caching-nameserver.conf
options {
        listen-on port 53 {; };
        listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
        directory       "/var/named";
        dump-file       "/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
        memstatistics-file "/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
        query-source    port 53;
        query-source-v6 port 53;
        allow-query     { localhost; };
logging {
        channel default_debug {
                file "data/named.run";
                severity dynamic;
view localhost_resolver {
        match-clients      { localhost; };
        match-destinations { localhost; };
        recursion yes;
        include "/etc/named.rfc1912.zones";
And zone file named "named.rfc1912.zones"

zone "." IN {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";

zone "localdomain" IN {
        type master;
        file "localdomain.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "localhost" IN {
        type master;
        file "localhost.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "komentari.info" IN {
        type master;
        file "/var/named/komentari.info.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.local";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.ip6.local";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "255.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.broadcast";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "0.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.zero";
        allow-update { none; };
Now I've modified zone file by adding my zone for my domain name which I want to host on this machine added this
zone "komentari.info" IN {
        type master;
        file "/var/named/komentari.info.zone";
        allow-update { none; };
Then I created /var/named/chroot/var/named/komentari.info.zone with this content
$TTL 14400
@      86400    IN      SOA     NS149210.RAPIDVPS.NET. hexteam.gmail.com. (
                2008170717      ; serial, todays date+todays
                86400           ; refresh, seconds
                7200            ; retry, seconds
                3600000         ; expire, seconds
                86400 )         ; minimum, seconds

komentari.info. 86400 IN NS NS149210.RAPIDVPS.NET.
komentari.info. 86400 IN NS NS15135.RAPIDVPS.NET.

komentari.info. IN A

localhost.komentari.info. IN A

komentari.info. IN MX 0 komentari.info.

mail IN CNAME komentari.info.
www IN CNAME komentari.info.
ftp IN CNAME komentari.info.
Then I created link "ln -s /var/named/chroot/var/named/ komentari.info.zone /var/named/komentari.info.zone"

Then I restarted named and apache and now I finally come to the question.. What am I doing wrong since I can't ping nor can't perform nslookup on komentari.info domain?

Thank you for any answers
