New subdomains not ping-ing

I created a new domain (newdomain.com) and several subdomains. I pointed each record to the server IP. I can successfully ping the "www" domain but I can't ping the subdomains.

When I ping "www.newdomain.com", I get this:
  PING www.newdomain.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.
  64 bytes from servername ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=47 time=41.0 ms
  64 bytes from servername ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=47 time=40.8 ms
  64 bytes from servername ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=47 time=40.9 ms

....but when I ping "test.newdomain.com, I get this first line:
  PING test.newdomain.com ( 56(84) bytes of data.

...and then nothing happens.

Any ideas?

My server info:
* Fedora release 7 (Moonshine)
* Server version: Apache/2.2.6 (Unix)
