[OpenAFS] DNS vs. CellServDB

Here's what I get from nslookup:
karl@coronado:~$ nslookup -type=3DAFSDB ridgetop-group.local

ridgetop-group.local    afsdb =3D 1 coronado.ridgetop-group.local.

That looks right to me.  Any idea why the OAFW client won't pick it up?

in our Bind-config are these lines:
kip.uni-heidelberg.de.  IN  AFSDB    1     afsdb1.kip.uni-heidelberg.de.
kip.uni-heidelberg.de.  IN  AFSDB    1     afsdb2.kip.uni-heidelberg.de.

and with nslookup it can checked:
# nslookup -type=3DAFSDB kip.uni-heidelberg.deServer:         =

kip.uni-heidelberg.de   afsdb =3D 1 afsdb2.kip.uni-heidelberg.de.
kip.uni-heidelberg.de   afsdb =3D 1 afsdb1.kip.uni-heidelberg.de.
