swiss registrar switch.ch and DNS?

    Does someone here work with the swiss registrar switch?
    I need help setting up nameservers with them.

    I currently have
    dns1.decodednews.com on
    dns2.decodednews.com on
    (both IP Addresses are on the same plesk server)

    But it doesn't seem to work, as switch always refuses these servers for domains with the message

    "dns1.decodednews.com: For this nameserver, the delegation check has failed. Please contact your hosting provider.
    dns2.decodednews.com: For this nameserver, the delegation check has failed. Please contact your hosting provider. "

    decodednews.com's DNS is managed at networksolutions, I have it forwarded to my server.

    DNS settings for decodednews.com are:

    decodednews.com. NS dns1.decodednews.com.
    decodednews.com. NS dns2.decodednews.com.
    decodednews.com. A
    webmail.decodednews.com. A
    mail.decodednews.com. A
    dns1.decodednews.com. A
    dns2.decodednews.com. A
    ftp.decodednews.com. CNAME decodednews.com.
    www.decodednews.com. CNAME decodednews.com.
    decodednews.com. MX (10) mail.decodednews.com. / 24 PTR decodednews.com.

    and a domain I try to set with these 2 nameservers:

    hotelscout.ch. NS dns2.decodednews.com.
    hotelscout.ch. NS dns1.decodednews.com.
    hotelscout.ch. A
    webmail.hotelscout.ch. A
    mail.hotelscout.ch. A
    ftp.hotelscout.ch. CNAME hotelscout.ch.
    www.hotelscout.ch. CNAME hotelscout.ch.
    hotelscout.ch. MX (10) mail.hotelscout.ch. / 24 PTR hotelscout.ch.

    what am I doing wrong?
