Secondary zone entry not seen in nslookup

I run 6.5.3 (just upgraded a week ago) - I have my primary domain and I do
xfers from my sister school for the secondary domain. I have an entry (MX
& A record) in the secondary domin for the email server at the sister
school. Today I had complaints that email is not going to the sister
school, I do an "nslookup on the address of the sister email server on my
workstation. I get:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
C:\Documents and Settings\rjm>nslookup 10.20.0.11
Server: MyDnsServerName.my.domain.com
Address: 10.100.0.10

*** MyDnsServerName.my.domain.com can't find 10.20.0.11: Non-existent
domain
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The MX & A record (for the sister email server)are clearly in the
secondary doamin - why can't I get an nslookup on it - this is the reason
the mail in not being sent - it dosen't know where to go.

I tried to make an "A" record for the sister school email server in my
primary domain but when I put the name of the server in MY dsn server
wants to attach my domain to it, the domain portion of the record is not
changeable, it is grayed out - Any help would be appreciated - RJM

Do you have a reverse lookup zone with that entry in it? It would be
named one of the following: 10.in-addr.arpa, 20.10.in-addr.arpa or
0.20.10.in-addr.arpa.

To be clear, is the Primary DNS server for the sister school's zone at
the sister school? And so your server is a Secondary DNS server for the
sister school's zone? And if yes to both of those, then these 2 servers
are in different NDS trees?

If no, to any of the above, please clarify what you mean by "primary"
and "secondary" as it is apparently not what is normally meant in a DNS
server environment.
