I am setting up a DNS cluster :

primarynameserver.domain.com
secondarynameserver.domain.com
host.domain.com (main server)

In primarynameserver.domain.com server, will i have to setup 2 nameservers like ns1.domain.com / ns2.domain.com and ns3.domain.com / ns4.domain.com or can i have ns1.domain.com at primarynameserver.domain.com and ns2.domain in secondarynameserver.domain.com ?

Thanks.

It's not required, but it makes it easier to recognize which server controls which name server when configuring your cluster.

Thank you.

Yes, it's acceptable to use the same IP address for multiple name servers on the same server.

Thank you.
