Simple dns-question that I just don't understand

I have cPanel dns-only clustered name servers.

I installed the new ns2 server and synced all dns-zones from ns1 server.
It took some time and load increased quite a bit on both servers, so I am sure that all data was copied.

Now when I browse to ns2 folder /var/named/, there are no dns files.
Still ns2 replies if dns-zone is queried from it. How can this be?

Only if I save dns zones on one of my clustered server, dns file appears to ns2 /var/named/ folder.
