ns.xmission.com doesn't appear to be authoritative for your domain and isn't allowing recursion, so you if you hit that nameserver with your query, the lookup will fail.  ns.xmission.com is also not setup as a glue record for campuswebstore.mobi.
[root@broken ~]# dig @ns69.domaincontrol.com landmark.test.campuswebstore.mobi +short
166.70.168.254

Anyone can see it as long as the nameserver that gave them the DNS query result is either ns69.domaincontrol.com or ns70.domaincontrol.com.

Remove ns.xmission.com NS record and all will be well.  I'm assuming it was added by mistake.

Or of course you could properly configure the nameserver at ns.xmission.com, but faster short-term fix is to remove the NS record so that everything works for now, then configure ns.xmission.com if it's still required and re-add the NS record after testing.

Thanks for the technical details, Papertrip, but I just wanted a yes or no answer.  Most of what you said was way over my head.

You have missed the point then.

Curious, why did you ask this question in the first place?  Were you or someone else unable to access the site, while others could?

I understand...there is just not much I can do about it.  Somebody else manages that aspect of the site.

We had problems getting to the site, but I think it was a matter of DNS propagation, not that the link was bad.  So, before I had the client try and go to the site again, I wanted to verify that a random person could get to the site.  That way I would know it was at least possible to reach the site.

As for the technical problems...I can pass them along to our web admin.
