    I am going to be upgrading my WHM dedicated box here soon, and I realized this is the only box I have controlling my DNS. Using WHM, how would I go about getting a secondary DNS server? I assume I just need an additional VPS or another box running WHM and configure some settings in the back end? In the event my dedicated box goes down, I want to make sure the DNS controlling the rest of my servers stays online. Do I have to modify any DNS entries for my main domain?

    Main server: ns1.gamersdns.com, ns2.gamersdns.com 2nd server: ns3.gamersdns.com, ns4.gamersdns.comgamersdns.com

    4 'A' name records going to the appropriate server.Does it sound like I have a pretty good handle on adding a secondary DNS? Anything I am missing?
