Hello, my domain is example.com and my NS server is ns1.example.net

Both are different domain. Should I still keep the IP of ns1.example.net in the zone file of example.com?

Thanks!

What Mal Osborne said.  And I think that it's smart to have both forward and inverse DNS entries for a nameserver.

Thanks for the answer, I am looking more on whether I should put the *Glue Record* for name server in my zone file?

As we see that  ns1.example.net is different domain than example.com and I am not authorized for inverse lookup zone of  ns1.example.net
