Could it be lack of support for DNSSEC as your domain shows:

http://dnssec-debugger.verisignlabs.com/timbuktu.kopseng.no shows no issues
with setup. 

VMware KB search shows no DNSSEC hits on Fusion, bunch on ESX. 
Might want to start with
https://communities.vmware.com/message/1454999#1454999 and the rest of that
thread. 
You can browse from there to more generic natd, dhcpd, and net config and
diag info or RTFM.
