IN A  is a reference to a DNS A record.

Now, we look down here and see:

GOL's nameservers are not authoritative for, yet
you're telling your dhcpd that is the
nameserver to talk to.  However, the authoritative nameservers
for are:

Authoritative answers can be found from:  nameserver = NS2.NORLIGHT.NET.  nameserver = NS1.NORLIGHT.NET.  nameserver = MKEJOURNAL.JSINC.COM.
NS2.NORLIGHT.NET        internet address =
NS1.NORLIGHT.NET        internet address =
MKEJOURNAL.JSINC.COM    internet address =

   Domain servers in listed order:


You're using a domain name that doesn't belong to you, 
and a nameserver that is not authoritative for that domain.
Unintentional, I'm sure, but don't do that :-)

If you eliminate those bogons (which you should do anyway)
and it still doesn't work, then you know you have a problem
with your dhcpd config.
