Well originally I thought it was a change in LC because it started
happening right after I upgraded LC but never let the LC list know I was
using vserver.

I agree. When I get a chance to look at it more indepth I hope to sort it
out. But it was causing a problem so I found and used a bandage.

Here are the applicable lines from /etc/named.conf

zone "rimrocksoftware.com" {
        type master;
        file "rimrocksoftware.com";

Here is the /var/named/rimrocksoftware.com file

$TTL 300

Not sure how to run the sendmail trace but here are the lines from

Aug 18 05:28:43 main sendmail[18824]: g7ICShu18824: from=raanders,
size=113, class=0, nrcpts=1,

Aug 18 05:28:43 main sendmail[18827]: g7ICShu18824: SYSERR(raanders): MX
list for rimrocksoftware.com points back to main.cyber-office.net

Aug 18 05:28:43 main sendmail[18827]: g7ICShu18824:

delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=esmtp, pri=30113,
relay=rimrocksoftware.com, dsn=5.3.5, stat=Local configuration error

Aug 18 05:28:43 main sendmail[18827]: g7ICShu18824: g7ICSht18827: DSN:
Local configuration error

I'm hoping this is just a user error on my part.
