DNS - in cPanel or Rackspace DNS Manager?

    I have set up cPanel on a cloud server in Rackspace. However, I notice that Rackspace have their own DNS management option which seems quite straight forward.

    I have some questions that I hope you can answer for me:

    1. Is it likely to be faster if I let Rackspace handle the DNS?
    2. Can I simply delete the DNS record in cPanel if I have it in the Rackspace DNS manager?
    3. Right now I have DNS set in both cPanel and Rackspace - how can I know which one is being given precedence?

    I am not sure if I understand what you mean...

    If DNS Zones of the domains in your server are elsewhere, i.e. in the Rackspace DNS manager, then any DNS Zones in your server have no effect whatsoever.

    You don't know, because they are used in random order.
