SOA primary name server understanding

The SOA in the forward zone file for a DNS server has the following kind of syntax:

@ IN SOA primary-name-server hostmaster-email (

My query here is that does the primary name server need to be a hostname of any server.

Please revert with the reply to my query.

Thats need to be the one of your primary IP of your BIND server. not just any server.
