[NTISP] Red "X" in DNS Manager ?

Has anyone ever experienced the following:

(Windows NT 4.0 SP 3)

In DNS Manager, when I double-click on 135.157.208.in-addr.arpa (the
reverse-lookup zone for my Class C), a red "X" appears on top of the folder, and
only the first two records (an NS record and the SOA record) appear in the big
white "Zone Info" section on the right side of the screen.

When I go into the 135.157.208.in-addr.arpa.dns file in the Winnt\System32\DNS
folder, everything looks fine. I see all of the hundreds of PTR records there,
for example.

I've tried stopping and restarting the "Microsoft DNS Server" service, but it
makes no difference. The .dns file appears to get updated correctly, but I just
can't access it through DNS Manager.

Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?
