Hello,

I was just wondering, what is the best practice for the DNS records that actually point to the name servers? For example, is it best to setup the DNS zone example.com, then add A records that point to ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4, etc, within that zone? Or, is it best to create separate DNS zones per name server, like ns1.example.com, ns2.example.com? I understand that either way does work, but what is best practice for this?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
