Currently, I have several dedicated servers at Ventures Online. I decided to take Dedicated Now up on their special for an additional server.

It was mentioned to me that setting up a trust relationship between the servers was not recommended. I've had a couple of people mention this, but nobody was clear as to why (they too had heard that it wasn't recommended).

Could somebody explain why a Trust relationship between servers is a bad thing?
If I were to establish a trust relationship, wouldn't my users be able to use the same nameservers: and

Should I not set it up this way?

If I don't set it up that way, wouldn't my users have to use different nameservers for each server?
Server 1:

Server 2:

Server 3:

I'm also trying to determine one other thing.
Lets say my server at VO is named ''
My server at Dedicated Now is ''

Is there anything I need to modify on the DNS on server 1 so that the '' points to the second server and doesn't act like a sub-domain on server1 (hope that makes sense).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated
