DNS-Only - Can I setup DNS Cluster using non-root WHM user with root privs?

We are going to be setting up our DNS Cluster soon, and so I am looking at the "Configure Cluster-->Configure" screen:

cPanel DNS Remote Configuration

Remote cPanel & WHM DNS host:

Remote server username:

Remote server access hash:
Can I use a remote server username that has "full root privileges" in WHM? (ie: On the remote server in the WHM reseller privileges area, this user has the "Root Access (All Features (warning: total and complete access)" checkbox enabled.)

Or does remote server username specified here always need to be root?
