NS Round Robin?

Thank you, but this still does not answer the question.

I need to know if there is REAL importance in the order.  My point
specifically is determining if you didn't actually register Primary as the
first server, and it was the third server.  What, if anything would this
do??  I don't think it would do anything, since multiple NS records respond
in a round robin fashion.

That's not what it says! Look again...

"in listed order". AFAIR they are in the order they were listed in the
registration request that NetSol have in their database. The
master should be listed first with the slaves afterwards.
