    In my DNS Zones listing I have a zone for a domain, example.com, which uses the main server IP.

    I have two nameservers, ns1.example.com, and ns2.example.com.

    Let's say the main server IP is 1.0.0.0 which is also being used by example.com.

    The two nameservers are set up like:

    ns1.example.com -> 1.0.0.0
    ns2.example.com -> 1.1.0.0

    I see there's a zone for example.com, but there are also zones for both ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com.

    Is this correct? No other subdomains have their own zones.

    And what about the full hostname? Should it too have its own zone? Let's say it's server01.example.com.

    Should there be a separate dns zone for server01.example.com or should "server01" be listed as an A entry resolving to 1.0.0.0?

    I think you have to declare a zone, and nameserver are declared in this zone.

    So declare example.com as a zone

    The hostname is: servername.domainname
    If your machine has the name server01 you add an A or CNAME entry :
    server01 14400 IN A 1.0.0.0
