DNS Bind

Hello,
I have a question about dns file zone.

Every zone file begins like:

Code:
@      86400    IN      SOA     ns1.website.com. admin@website.com. (

It means that name server ns1 is responsible for this zone.
At the ending I can add the records like
Code:
mysite.com	IN	A	1.2.3.4

So it will bind an IP address to my server's hostname.
But if I want to have only my own zone and dont have any ns responsible for it, should I write the hostname of server where I'm configuring bind?
Code:
@      86400    IN      SOA     mysite.com. admin@website.com. (

But you need at least one server that is authoritative for your domain. You could e.g. have your domain hosted by a provider, then you do not need a server. I think you can use any host as long as it is the nameserver for that domain.

This works very well:
Code:
@       IN      SOA     dns.my.com.      mirus.my.com. (

Code:
dns.my.com.             IN      A       MY.I.P.ADDRESS
