Angry NS with static or dynamic IP


Hi guys!
I'm wondering how can an Internet authority knows whether my Name Server has a static or dynamic IP.
I've been trying fo couple of days to set up my own Name Server, although I've got a dynamic IP. Doesn't bother me that I would have to modify the zone files every time my IP will be changed... The idea (and I'm getting obsesed with it) is that I want to be able to type "dig mydomain.com" and get an answer ffrom my NS, not from zoneedit's name servers like I get now.
Some people are saying that that is imposible as long I have a dynamic IP.
Others have tried to be more technical, saying that my NS (because of the same reason- dynamic IP) is an unpublished one and can't be seen by the root servers.
Could somebody give me an explanation why I can't use my dynamic IP to make my NS fully functional?

Thanks a lot

It is simply because no-one referring you as a NS server.

For any unknown Domain, a server will try to ask for it from the DNS server defined internally or by default. The problem is that no machine will take reference from your server.

This half right:
"my NS (because of the same reason- dynamic IP) is an unpublished one and can't be seen by the root servers".
Your NS is not a published one, so even you have a STATIC IP, you won't got it.

Thank you for responding me.
You said that no one is referring me as a NS server. What about my registrar?
The registrar is asking me for a pair or more of NS. If I give them my NS addresses, wouldn't that mean that my registrar will refer my NS to name space domain as a valid NS?

If you have passed the NS addresses to registrar, and you have tested this for a period of time, then the problem is from the dynamic ip of your NS server......
