Yes you can use each of your active hosting servers as a DNS server if you like
We use 4+ DNS only though out of convenience.
That Way we can Retire,take down, or change a server without messing with the dns + we have a lot of zones so it save some resources.

Thanks i also think it's easy to add or remove cPanel servers, i am thinking of keep my 4 DNS server only thing that puts me off a bit is cPanel will be charging for them soon.

The article pretty clearly states that they will remain free for the time being:

Will DNSONLY licenses remain free?
While we can’t promise it will always be the case (only Sith deal in absolutes), we can say that it’s the plan for them to remain free at this time. We need more information before we can make any decisions at all. We can also say that if that ever changes we’ll be as open and honest with everyone in our community about it as possible.
as for the why we're adding licenses:
We’re adding this license type because we want to be able to make intelligent decisions about the DNSONLY product. Then we can continue to focus on making the best solutions for our customers.

I believe the original title was simply: DNS Server, which makes no sense.
It does to me and this is the description below which i was asking.
