How do I fix Mismatched Glue error?

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.:

It kind of depends really.

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

The TLD servers are correct.

That probably simplifies things.

The authoritative DNS servers must have the wrong host (A) Records for the servers used in the NS Records.
