    I got a great offer to sell one of my domains.

    Problem is, that it's the domain that I'm using for the DNS on my server (NS1 & NS2).

    Wondering if it's possible to add NS3 & NS4, with one of my other domains and then change all my DNS settings at my registrar?

    In other words, I want to setup my server to have 4 DNS entries like this:

    NS1.DOMAIN-1.COM
    NS2.DOMAIN-1.COM
    NS3.DOMAIN-2.COM
    NS4.DOMAIN-2.COM

    Let NS3 & NS4 propagate.

    Then go to my registrar & change all my domains to point to NS3 & NS4 instead of NS1 & NS2.

    Is this possible? Will it work without downtime? Is there a better way to accomplish this?

    A thousand thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    You will also have to change all the zone file NS entries for any domains using those nameservers. There's the usual propagation time to take into account which you should allow for before relinquishing the domain.
