    Can you provide the detail information that was in the right hand side for those to give us a better idea why it got the grade it did.

    Open DNS - just means it accepts queries for zones its not authorized for - should say their in recursive state though
    No NS A records at nameservers - could be an issue, but simple to fix
    lame nameservers -could be an issue, and a little harder to fix

    however more information would be appreciated.

    Lame nameservers
    ERROR: You have one or more lame nameservers. These are nameservers that do NOT answer authoritatively for your domain. This is bad; for example, these nameservers may never get updated. The following nameservers are lame:

    No NS A records at nameservers
    WARNING: Your nameservers do not include any corresponding A records when asked for your NS records. They probably are not returning the A records when asked, which can prevent some other DNS servers from contacting your DNS servers. They should do this if they are authoritative for those A records. The problem record(s) are:
    Nameserver did not provide IPs for all NS records (but did provide at least one)

    Accepted Solution

    "No NS A records at nameservers" - means you have name servers defined with NS records -

    However you are missing the host records for ns1, ns2, ns3 in your domain:
