No SOA records for ns8.zoneedit.com, ns9.zoneedit.com

My domain (litbt.net, under the legacy free system) doesn't appear to have any nameserver records despite being configured with various A records.

Querying the standard DNS system fails to resolve the domain, but directly querying the ns8.zoneedit.com nameserver does resolve the domain.

Below are some "dig" commands that demonstrate this, and external DNS-checker tools confirm:

How can I get the SOA records back on so that my domain name resolves again?

Many thanks,
Greg

The domain is on ClientHold at its registrar, Domain.com. You would need to take care of that at the registrar before the domain will resolve again.
Thanks
