the domain name is not delegated to zoneedit:
Whois sigmaco.com


Domain Name: SIGMACO.COM
Registry Domain ID: 1196773_DOMAIN_COM-VRSN
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.networksolutions.com
Registrar URL: http://networksolutions.com
Updated Date: 2018-06-21T14:46:40Z
Creation Date: 1998-04-29T04:00:00Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2024-04-28T04:00:00Z

Domain Status: clientTransferProhibited https://icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited
Name Server: NS1.SIGMACO.COM
Name Server: NS2.SIGMACO.COM

the vanity nameservers appear to point to comcast and Qwest

the only zoneedit service the domain is using is back up MX:
host -t mx sigmaco.com


sigmaco.com mail is handled by 500 sigmaco-com.mail.protection.outlook.com.


sigmaco.com mail is handled by 505 mx-caprica.zoneedit.com.

Quest & Comcast are our ISP
Network Solutions is where we purchased our Domain name years ago
Sucurri is our firewall and the reason you won't see ZoneEdit as endpoint. We have whitelisted this IP and DNS at their end too.

But ZoneEdit is our DNS registrar. We have added multiple A records over the years. This is the first time we are facing this issue. Please let me know if there is a number we call to discuss this issue in detail.

Thank you.

sorry, zoneedit does not provide phone support... but as a paid account you can use the Get Support link on your members page to use our ticketing support.
... but I do not see how zoneedit is providing the DNS service when zoneedit nameservers are not delegated at the registrar.

in the zone file with zoneedit the NS point to :
@ 7200 IN NS ns12.zoneedit.com.
@ 7200 IN NS ns19.zoneedit.com

we have the record loaded:
dig @ns12.zoneedit.com a spamtitan.sigmaco.com
; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @ns12.zoneedit.com a spamtitan.sigmaco.com
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 40665
;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;; QUESTION SECTION:

;spamtitan.sigmaco.com. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:
spamtitan.sigmaco.com. 300 IN A 34.238.225.202


and then testing one of the delegated servers:

dig @NS1.SIGMACO.COM a spamtitan.sigmaco.com

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @NS1.SIGMACO.COM a spamtitan.sigmaco.com
; (1 server found)

;; global options: +cmd

;; Got answer:

;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 47084

;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;; QUESTION SECTION:

;spamtitan.sigmaco.com. IN A

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
sigmaco.com. 30 IN SOA ns1.sigmaco.com. hostmaster\@sigmaco.com. 2019032817 360 60 1209600 30
;; Query time: 31 msec

___

where the delegated servers do have a record for the root domain:

dig @NS1.SIGMACO.COM a sigmaco.com

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @NS1.SIGMACO.COM a sigmaco.com


; (1 server found)


;; global options: +cmd

;; Got answer:

;; WARNING: recursion requested but not available

;; QUESTION SECTION:

;sigmaco.com. IN A

;; ANSWER SECTION:

sigmaco.com. 30 IN A 192.124.249.9

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:

sigmaco.com. 900 IN NS ns1.sigmaco.com.

sigmaco.com. 900 IN NS ns2.sigmaco.com.
