Name server question

Posted on 2006-04-07
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I have a test network with 3 DC's all running DNS.  2 DC's are on the test.local domain.  1 DC is on a sub domain named subdomain.test.local.  On the name servers tab of the test.local domain, it lists the name server for the sub domain, as well as the expected 2 DC's from the test.local domain.  Is this normal?  Should the sub domain's name server entry be deleted?

    It must be there as a pointer to the delegated sub domain.  That's the only thing that makes sense.   Does this sound right or am I missing something?
