DNS client added to DNS server but not working

We have built a new server (RHEL VM)and added that IP/hostname into dns zone configs file on DNS server (Solaris 10). Reloaded the configuration using
rndc reload
and added nameserver into resolv.conf on client. But when I am trying nslookup, its not getting resolved. The nameserver is not able to resolve the hostname to IP or viceversa... Getting message as "** server can't find xyz: REFUSED"

The port is open too.

any help is appreciated...

Maybe you need to allow query access, like
cat /etc/named.conf
options {
        allow-recursion { any; };
        allow-query  { any; };
        allow-query-cache { any; };

Can you share the content of /etc/resolv.conf and the output of a test nslookup so we can see.

Thanks, in advance,

[root@xyzname ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver  a.b.c.d

[root@xyznamel ~]# nslookup xyzname  a.b.c.d
Server:          a.b.c.d
Address:        a.b.c.d#53

** server can't find xyzname: REFUSED

Having no clue of Solaris, when seeing some clients resolve successfully and some not, I'd meticulously compare the working and non-working clients' configurations: network setup, OS and resolver versions, config files' contents, what have you.
