<http://totalbroadcast.net/zenith/zenith128.pls> is not an address of the
stream. It's a playlist. The warning from the log confirms the type.

You need supply an address of the stream to icecast. The address can be found
in the playlist document. Look:

$ wget -q -O - http://totalbroadcast.net/zenith/zenith128.pls

So there are exactly two unique addresses. Pick one of them for the icecast
configuration file.
