I guess my question to you is if you did any prep work prior to applying the kilz product to the panelling?

Generally It is a good Idea to clean the panelling first to remove any contaminants that interfere with coating adhesion, This is generally done with a cleanser like 409 or simple green, after the panelling is clean and free of contaminants you then "Scuff Sand" the panelling to provide an Anchor profile for your primer to bond to, this is done usually with a round a 220 grit sandpaper and sanded with the grain of the panelling. Be sure to vacume clean all dust and debris of the walls and floor.
Now your Kilz primer really needs at least an overnight dry to allow for proper bond, If you are using the latex kilz primer then I would suggest you lest it dry for several days so that the coating has a proper cure prior to applying your top coat.
