Will this work below using 2 cPanel DNS Only Servers?

cPanel DNS Only Server #1
DNS Server Host name: dns1.server1.com
ns1.server2.com (Primary Name Server for shared hosting servers)
ns1.server1.com (Primary Name Server for reseller, dedicated and VPS hosting servers)

cPanel DNS Only Server #2
DNS Server Host name: dns2.server1.com
ns2.server2.com (Seconday Name Server for shared hosting servers)
ns2.server1.com (Secondary Name Server for reseller, dedicated and VPS hosting servers)

I assume that this will work and just want to verify that it would work.

Hello :)

Yes, this type of setup would technically work. However, note that any servers within the cluster will be able to see the list of DNS zones of other servers in the cluster. This is not an ideal setup if you have multiple VPS servers owned by different individuals linked to the same cluster. DNS clusters with cPanel DNS-Only are recommended for servers owned/operated by the same person or company.

Thank you.

Long day and start of a long week.

These are servers listed above will be servers I have that are not part normal customers and will be controlled by me because they are for close friends and family separated from paying customers.
