NS A records and nameservers

The "NS A records at nameservers" test results in a message,"Your nameserver do not include A records when asked for your NS records." I don't see anything wrong with this zone file (names and IPs changed).

I would test it using "dig" but don't know the exact query. Does anyone know what the "dig" command would be for this test so that I can test it?

$ORIGIN example.com.
@ IN SOA ns.example.com. admin.example.com. (
IN NS ns
IN NS ns5.backupdns.com.
IN NS ns6.backupdns.com.
IN NS ns7.backupdns.com.
IN MX 10 mail.example.com.
IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4: mx ptr mx:mail ~all"
ns IN A
mail IN A

RE:NS A records and nameserver

this is not a critical error on your zone file. The test page is telling you that your nameserver does not include glue records when asked for your nameservers, meaning that we need to make an additional query.
Tell us your domain and we will go throught it!
