I have a VServer at Hosteurope with IP X.Y.Z. I have bought a domain and the first nameserver is set to my VServer X.Y.Z that I administrate with PLESK. I have setup the DNS records for the domain within PLESK.
Now, as the secondary nameserver I have the HE default secondary nameserver, like ns2.hosteurope.yxcyxc
I thought the default HE secondary nameserver would clone the DNS records of my primary server. But according to Hosteurope support secondary HE nameserver only maps to my VServer and if the server is down, nothing will happen.
I always thought a nameserver must have all DNS settings and the second nameserver would always clone the DNS settings of the primary nameserver. Is this actually not the case? Does a nameserver only contain the IP of the target server from the requested website? Or does it also contains the DNS records? If it contains the DNS records, does one need to set the DNS settings twice, once time for primary and one time for secondary nameserver?
