Bind Centos: dig: couldn't get address

on my BIND9.x centos5.x machine i still have some problems
with configuration of the DNS.

if i type:
# dig NS
dig: couldn't get address for '': not found

The question is do i need to set up a zone fore
cos,i do have one for which looks like this:

$ttl 86400
@ IN SOA root.localhost. (
86400 );
NS ;
NS ;
MX 10 ;
www A
ns1 A
ns2 A A
* A TXT "v=spf1 a mx ~all" TXT "v=spf1 a -all"

the strangest thing is that if i do the same but than on the second server (ns2)
# dig NS

it will return info like is should...

any ideas?
