Hello @ALBGeri,

First, check out the following document for general information about setting up name servers:

Regarding the second cPanel & WHM server, I recommend creating separate name servers for it rather than setting up a DNS cluster between the two servers if you desire complete isolation from the existing server.

Thank you.
