Finding out who is managing DNS

I have been called in to a client where a full time IT guy was let go, and not on good terms.  They are a small sat office, and they were running a mail server on an OS X server.  Anyway, we are migrating their mail up to the main office and putting them on an exchange server.  I have been trying all day to find out who has the mx records.  The domain has an outside webhosting company that says they don't, they registered with godaddy, and godaddy says they are not controlling the DNS for the domain.  I did a whois and found this.

Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
   Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com
   Name Server: NS1.CL.BELLSOUTH.NET
   Name Server: NS2.CL.BELLSOUTH.NET
   Name Server: NS3.CL.BELLSOUTH.NET
   Status: clientDeleteProhibited
   Status: clientRenewProhibited
   Status: clientTransferProhibited
   Status: clientUpdateProhibited

They have bell south(ATT now) for internet service, a 20mb line out of the office.  So I called them since they were listed as nameservers.  After hours on the phone trying to get access to the account(last IT guy used personal info), I finally got into the bell south DNS "manager" to find that no domains are listed.  Now I am out of ideas........any help would be greatly appreciated.
