Hello,

The dnsadmin service always runs as of cPanel version 56. Here's the relevant section from the cPanel 56 Release Notes:

Improved dnsadmin functionality
In order to properly handle it, we have updated the way in which cPanel & WHM manages the dnsadmin service.
  • You can enable or disable monitoring for the dnsadmin service via the cPanel DNS Admin Cache setting in WHM's Service Manager interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager). The upgrade will enable this setting by default.
  • Because cPanel & WHM now always runs the dnsadmin service via a daemon and no longer runs it as a compiled binary, we have removed the following settings:
    • The dnsadmin_as_daemon and use_compiled_dnsadmin settings from the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file.
    • The Use compiled dnsadmin setting from the System section of WHM's Tweak Settings interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings).
Is it resulting in a particular issue on your system?

Thank you.
