the best would be that you edit zone file directly by using file editor and then once you save it restart dns.
After restart check your dns changes by using this site, it has live info

I will share with you my working zone file called born2host.com.db:
Code: [Select]
$TTL 14400
born2host.com.      86400        IN      SOA     ns1.born2host.com. root.born2host.com. (
                    2016101602      ; serial, todays (yearmonthdaychangetimes)
                    3600           ; refresh, seconds
                    3600            ; retry, seconds
                    3600000         ; expire, seconds
                    7200 )         ; minimum, seconds

;; NS Records
born2host.com.  IN      NS      ns1.born2host.com. //setting born2host.com in NameServer1
born2host.com.  IN      NS      ns2.born2host.com. //setting born2host.com in NameServer2

;; A Records (Forwarding IPv4)
ns1.born2host.com.      IN      A       77.236.172.141 //setting IPv4 for NameServer1
ns2.born2host.com.      IN      A       77.236.172.141 //setting IPv4 for NameServer2 (yes, can be the same)
born2host.com.          IN      A       77.236.172.141 //setting IPv4 for born2host.com
localhost.born2host.com.        IN      A       127.0.0.1 //setting IPv4 for localhost

;; AAAA Records (Forwarding IPv6)
born2host.com.          IN      AAAA    2001:470:1f1a:d7::2 //setting IPv6 for born2host.com

;; MX Records (Mail Server)
born2host.com.  IN      MX      0       born2host.com. //setting MX(Mail eXchange(Mail Server)) record

;; CNAME Records (Aliases)
mail    IN      CNAME   born2host.com. //setting alias mail.born2host.com
www     IN      CNAME   born2host.com. //setting alias www.born2host.com
ftp     IN      CNAME   born2host.com. //setting alias ftp.born2host.com

;; TXT Records (DKIM & SPF)
default._domainkey 14400 IN TXT "v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQCxFD7pZRKG3Ulq8M/QGHgV4sPuEvLx0pgNFhZqSdTanv/MOMT0PAIOduKpmOyUd4WVstJKuttBpPaoq7HhxX06tW9VUEjC/cC59YpVC7Kd+l0oj2yMu8iKOU065oj503N/7eW0Yd/kB0rvWHVHYOZ4Vu+q8o9YXiUOLuZ3E4WSWQIDAQAB" //DKIM record you should generate it through CWP admin panel
born2host.com. 14400 IN TXT "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:192.168.1.102 ~all" //SPF record also generate from CWP admin panel
That`s it. change born2host.com with your domain, generate DKIM and SPF records through CWP.admin panel and you are done. It will be working. Put the file your-domain.tld.db in /var/named and add this lines to your /etc/named.conf:
Code: [Select]
zone "born2host.com" in{
        type master;
        file "/var/named/born2host.com.db";
};
Change born2host.com to your-domain.tld and you are done. Have fun.

Your mx record with gapps seem correct, but gapps (zoho as well) need specific record to proof that the domain is yours.
