Probably just wait.  It looks like you have 1 week TTL on your SOA and A 
records; If the NH user had accessed your DNS before it was completely 
set up, it could be up to a week before the NH DNS notices the change.

Try dig -t soa serensoft.com at the NH site and look at the serial 
number.  Is it old?  If so, wait it out.  You must change the serial 
number when you change the zone files or some servers might not refresh 
their caches.
