does new dns server need registry address present prior to accepting broadcast from my server

I set up my own dns server: it seems to be working fine according to the dns query on my own server.. dig gives me the right output and also axfr show the zone transfers..: no error messages from /var/log/messages> that was about 2 hours ago: now I went to my registrar and tried to change my dns settings to the site..but it wont take them.: do I need to have them 'force' the address or will their registry 'stuff'?' recognize my broadcast after a while and let the changes take place..?

you probably also need to setup their DNSs as non-authoritative and make them forwarders or slaves of yours

then you need your registrar/host to setup NS records pointing on your server
while his servers are authoritative, the change is likely to be blocked by their software

don't forget to keep theirs as a backup, and possibly give them higher priority than yours if you do not want to much trafic on your own server. you may even skip the second step altogether so only their servers get the trafic

obviously, you need to enable dns trafic from their servers to yours on your firewall.
if you let his servers be slaves you need to allow zone transfers as well (tcp connection on port 53 and configure your server to allow them as well. it probably defaults to allow zone transfers from lan addresses only)

good luck

I believe you may need to manually enter a Name Server record into your DNS.

it takes a bit of waiting.
if your DNS zone contained TTL of 1 week you have to wait a month for everything to sort out.

from skullnb: this was my solution: the registrar just needs to go in and start the process: they are the chicken and the egg...
