    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 ns1.myhost.com and ns2.myhost.com - 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.
