    I have a website that's located in Dallas datacenter.

    And I would like to setup its nameservers in Chicago datacenter.

    like
    ns1.website.tdl
    ns2.website.tdl for shared hosting offerings.

    How exactly do I do that?

    If you have access to an account in the Chicago DC, I would suggest you have one name server located there, and the other in Dallas, that way they are on two different networks. To set this up, you would need create an account on both servers, and edit the zone file to change the IP address for the name server at the Dallas location, and change the IP for ns2 to the Chicago IP. At the Chicago account, you would need to change all the IP's for the A records to point back to the Dallas account, except the ns2 value. Of course, you would need to add these name servers to your registrar as well.

    I got it to work.

    Here is what I did

    the main DNS for the main site was

    ns.domain.tdl
    ns2.domain.tdl

    and then on the hosting server the DNS is set to

    ns26.domain.tdl to ns29.domain.tdl

    and now all new accounts point to anywhere from ns26 to ns29 and they seem to come online.
