1. Are all of the name servers listed in your WHOIS authortative for your domain?
2. If they are listed in your WHOIS, this means they are all primary name servers right ? (not secondaries?) Or......is one a primary and one a secondary?
3. From the plethora of online DNS stuff I've read: Primary nameservers have an SOA for your domain. Secondary servers do not.
Do secondary servers have primary Forward Lookup Zones? Here's an example. At home, i host my own DNS server (dissovledz.com). It is the primary name server for my domain. I have no additional name servers. If I were to create another name server at another location......should this be another primary nameserver or should it be a secondary? Should it be a primary forward lookup zone in this server or secondary lookup zone (you see where I am confused?)
