    Hello :)

    Please check the DNS Zone for your primary domain name. There is likely an "A" entry for "server1" within that DNS Zone already.

    Thank you.

    You do not need a DNS zone for server1.domain.com, you need an A record for server1.domain.com.
    The same with DNS zones for ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com, you don't need them, you need the A records only.

    I never make separate DNS records for hostnames and/or nameservers, I add them in the domain's DNS zone, where they belong to.
