DNS server won't return CNAME record

[ Edited ]

I have AT&T/BellSouth DSL service and it supplies me with 2 DNS servers: {Personal content removed for your safety} and {Personal content removed for your safety}.

 

There is a CNAME record hosted at dns1.vps.net that points [3rd party link removed per Guidelines] (not what you think) to [3rd party link removed per Guidelines].

 

While other people report having no problems putting [3rd party link removed per Guidelines] in their browser, I get "host not found" messages.

 

I tried nslookup using the bellsouth DNS server:

 

> nslookup status.obamaconspiracy.org 205.152.128.23
Server:  dns.clt.bellsouth.net
Address:  205.152.128.23

*** dns.clt.bellsouth.net can't find status.obamaconspiracy.org: Non-existent do main

 

The other AT&T server and a couple of SBCGlobal servers I tried didn't work either. However, if I use Google's public DNS server, it works OK.

 

>nslookup status.obamaconspiracy.org 8.8.8.8

Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    [3rd party link removed per Guidelines]
Address:  [3rd party link removed per Guidelines]
Aliases:  [3rd party link removed per Guidelines]

 

I tried the Global DNS Propagation Checker at [3rd party link removed per Guidelines]and it shows the whole world has the entry (except Hong Kong and Sydney). The CNAME record is about 14 hours old.

 

I can switch to Google's DNS, but I hate making hard-wired settings like that.
