Benefits of domain being it's own DNS server...
Posted on 2004-09-15
We are setting up a DNS server for our 50+ domains on Windows Server 2003.
We have the option of setting up one domain as the DNS server or each domain as it's own DNS server.
i.e. dns1.domain1.com, dns1.domain2.com, dns1.domain3.com
versus each domain being under dns.domain1.com
Does anyone know of any reasons for setting up each domain as it's own DNS server? Does AOL give preference to mail from domains that have their own DNS server, for example?
Otherwise it seems easier to have just one DNS server for each domain.
