Question about cPanel DNS Only Cluster

How would I setup the DNS cluster correctly with the different modes?

We have cns1, cns2 and a main server.  What should I set the two NameServers as on the main server?  Alternatively, what should I set the main server to on each of the NameServers?


Synchronize Changes: All changes made on this server will propagate to any server in the cluster that is linked to this server. Synchronization is one-way: changes made on another server will not propagate to this server unless Synchronize changes is selected on the other server as well.


Standalone: No changes made on this server will propagate to any other servers.


Write Only: This server will write changes to the remote server, but when this server loads zone files, it will not obtain zone data from the remote server.



Thanks in advance!

On the main servers:

cns1: Synchronize Changes

cns2: Synchronize Changes

On both name servers:

main server: Standalone

This should work :)
