When DNS is concerned your primary and secondary servers and exact duplicates. The Secondary DNS server is just a copy of your zone files, etc.

There really isn't a DNS Promotion tool (that I am aware of - I could be wrong).

Heres a white paper of configuring DNS:

And here is a document on configuring a secondary DNS:
