DNS problems are now resolved.

We removed the following records from      IN CNAME
 wearables     IN A  

and replaced them with
@       IN A  
wearables       IN CNAME

The main issue was changing the CNAME to an A record. 

Also, I had brought down the times so that all the times were 10 mins, 
but Ross changed them to 
               10800           ; refresh
               3600            ; retry
               604800          ; expire
               86400 ) ; minimum 
Actually, there is a rule that states that refresh must be at last 
something bigger than retry and expire must have some relationship to 
refresh, but that was only a warning. It was the cname that was 
actually preventing the zone transfers.
