Before I jump in, what are the things I need to consider.

Here are  the file containing the zones that I need to register (had to change the terms to 'test'). Is this sufficient? Please advise.

$TTL 300
testrad.com.      IN      SOA     mx-gw5.testsp.com.  sagroup.testtek.com.  ( 2011022500 3600  600    1209600 300  )
                NS      mx-gw5.testsp.com.
                NS      mx-gw6.testsp.com.


        MX      100     testrad.com.s5a1.psmtp.com.
        MX      200     testrad.com.s5a2.psmtp.com.
        MX      300     testrad.com.s5b1.psmtp.com.
        MX      400     testrad.com.s5b2.psmtp.com.

;testaccess              A
;testaccess              A
testmsftp01              A
sss1                    A
sss2                    A
inside                  A
ftp01                   A
www                     CNAME   redir.digtestgrp.com.

;  Delegated sub-zone:  *.testaccess.testrad.com.
testaccess.testrad.com.            NS      sss1.testrad.com.
testaccess.testrad.com.            NS      sss2.testrad.com.

;  End delegation

Also, forgot to mention I have two servers that I need to build DNS on and both are currently standalone (not part of a domain).

Looks fine to me, this will be a public DNS server then?

If so, one of the few things you might consider doing is disabling Recursion (meaning the server will only respond to queries for zones it owns). That's done under the server properties, then Advanced.
