I requested a report from dnsstuff and received a 'FAIL' under the NS section for Mismatched Glue.  How do I fix this?  I recently moved my servers to a different location and we are now using a different ISP.  I updated my A records and MX records with Network Solutions and the reverse DNS with my ISP.  Should I also move my NS to the new ISP (Qwest) instead of with Network Solutions?

Here is the error:

ERROR: Your nameservers report glue that is different from what the parent servers report. This will cause DNS servers to get confused; some may go to the IP provided by the parent servers, while others may get to the ones provided by your authoritative DNS servers. Problem record(s) are:

NS79.WORLDNIC.com.:
Parent server (m.gtld-servers.net) says A record is 205.178.190.40, but
authoritative DNS server (205.178.190.40) says it is 209.62.20.186
NS80.WORLDNIC.com.:
Parent server (m.gtld-servers.net) says A record is 205.178.189.40, but

It kind of depends really.

Which IP is right? The one held by the TLD Servers? Or the one held on the authoritative servers?
