I notice that, with most of the web hosts I use, they provide nameserver addresses under their main domain (or a related domain).

So when I setup a website on their servers, under a domain like

myserver.com, they setup nameservers as
Is this best practice? Should the nameservers be associated with a different domain?
(My thoughts are that they should, otherwise you need to access the DNS records for
myserver.com in order to find out where the servers which house the DNS records you just accessed are.... Sounds a bit chicken & egg to me.)
Any advice or observations greatly appreciated.
