One of my co-workers just got all confused and mixed up, because when he went to the DNS section of the plesk control panel (provided by our web host), it told him that
"The Plesk's DNS server acts as a primary name server for the DNS zone <our zone name>"
Well, the web-host name-server was not our authoritative name server, and adding records there had no material effect on what users saw. But a "primary" domain name server is normally just the first name server that your workstation or service queries. Which leads me to the questions:
Is there something on a Plesk /Wordpress /joomla / Drupal website that would use a 'primary' name server? What does it mean "for domain"? Is this all just misleading and confusing, or if not, what does it mean?
