DNS Questions Multiple DNS Servers with single domain


Say I have a domain name called "example.com"

example.com is already on Server A
It is being used for two nameservers

ns1.example.com 77.89.81.101
ns2.example.com 77.89.81.102

======================================
Now let's say I have server B and I want to create more nameservers using the domain example.com

bns1.example.com 88.21.35.44
bns2.example.com 88.21.35.45

I don't want this new DNS server to have a slave relationship with Server A, it is completely independent and will host DNS for a different set of domains.

Is this possible?

I've created a zone file like this:
=========================================================
$TTL 14400
@ IN SOA bns1.example.com ( (
2009012710
14400
3600
1209600
86400 )

example.com. 14400 IN NS bns1.example.com.
example.com. 14400 IN NS bns2.example.com.

bns1.example.com. 14400 IN A 88.21.35.44
bns2.example.com. 14400 IN A 88.21.35.45
============================================================

Is the above correct and will it work as intended? I guess what I'm getting hung up on is that a zonefile for example.com is already declared on Server A with different entries of course.

Will the two DNS servers fight or will things work as planned?
If not someone smack me and show me the light

Thank you everyone.

hi,

nice question and i did tempt to answer it ,
but - experience is the most beautiful thing,
just try to activate those name servers with a single domain - and see what happens next?

ANS1, &2.example.com
BNS1, &2.example.com
