Nameservers reported as being "lame"

I recently added 4 new IPs to my server, and added 2 of them as nameserver IPs. I added them via WHM, and then went into Nameserver IPs and added two new nameservers.

Now it seems they don't answer authoritatively for any domain on my server. During new domain addition, it claims that ns3.patternet.com and ns4.patternet.com are "lame" and don't answer.

Am I missing a step to add a nameserver and to set it up to answer for the domains?

I've added the ns*.patternet.com to my /etc/wwwacct.conf file since both NS3 and NS4 were empty. I did this only AFTER restarting Bind. I restarted Bind after I made the changes, and still they're not picked up. WHM shows me as having 4 nameservers (ns1.patternet.com -> ns4.patternet.com).

If you run a report at dnsstuff.com (you have to be a member, it's free I believe) you will see what I'm talking about. ns1/2.patternet.com answer authoritatively for "bpatterson.net", but ns3/4.patternet.com don't.

Any help would be appreciated.

I get

Code:
FAIL Missing nameservers 2 ERROR: One or more of the nameservers listed at the parent servers are not listed as NS records at your nameservers. The problem NS records are:
ns3.patternet.com.
ns4.patternet.com.
Which tells me they are not in your DNS. Use WHM edit the DNS for bpatterson.net and add

bpatterson.net. 86400 IN NS ns3.bpatterson.net.
bpatterson.net. 86400 IN NS ns4.bpatterson.net.

Re-run your DNS report.
