BIND not responding but is running and accepting connections

Hi, I'm running attempting to run BIND9 on a Redhat 9 box I have set up.  I have 2 other nameservers in different places that don't have any problems..I configured and ran named, and checked /var/log/messages..no errors on startup for the configuration or zone files..but my domain wont resolve.  I used several DNS tools to verify that the domain was attempting to use that nameserver, and it is.  The box is accepting connections on 53, but is failing to respond with any information.  I ran a DNS lookup program that talks to nameservers directly..and instead of receiving any kind of error response from the server regarding the domain like it would if the records didn't exist, it just says 'Connection Reset by Remote Side'.  I have no idea what could be wrong as the server is giving me no error messages or anything..any ideas?

service iptables stop.

or better yet..

put a rule into iptables to allow udp 53.
