Can someone explain to me how secondary servers work with bind?

    Can someone try to explain to me just how exactly CPANEL works at synchronizing zone files and things? For example, I set my second server as a slave server to my first, and synchronized the records and all that. However, when I add an account to my second server, and the account is pointing to the same nameservers as before and - it doesn't redirect correctly to the second server, it still goes to the first. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to enable my 'nameserver' on the second server? It says that it's not recommended durring WHM setup, so I didn't know. Can someone help me out with this? Thanks.

    The secondry server needs a trust relationship with the primary.
    The secondry will simply mirror the primary DNS records. Support Ticket Number:
