Tunneling through SSH using OzymanDNS (Setup of DNS question)

I am trying to setup a version of OzymanDNS but am not quite sure I am understanding part of the instructions found here.

My domain/website is hosted with a web hosting company, using their name servers. I have added a sub domain (, using an A record to send any requests for to my home IP address, where I have a server running. Do I need to also add the code below to my server at home which has BIND installed or are the instructions expecting that I have full control of the main name server already?

Code:  IN      NS     IN      A

If you host is providing your DNS you do not need to run bind at all (unless you want to provide it internally or you set up a caching DNS server) You will need to have a server at your home IP address to answer reuests to tunnel.domain.tld
