DNS Server

Maybe a dumb question, but I'm a noob.

We are moving colocation facilities - we currently just have ns1.ourdomain.com - when this server is moved to another address, how is DNS going to update. How is the world going to know anything,ourdomain.com when ns1,ourdomain.com is the authoratative (and only) DNS server for our  small domain and it changes IP addresses. To me its a chicken / egg problem. How can it resolve www.ourdomain.com if it can't find ns1.ebby.com? Do I need to do anything or will BIND start talking to the world with its new IP address?

You new Data center should give you all your new ipaddress and should add your Name Server in to there system to respond to your site before the move. It depends on your Server Operation system. Example if you are using Plesk you just need to add the new address to the system and it will make the changes needed.
