If a slave loads a zone and doesn't appear in the NS records for the zone
(either from the parent's delegation or from the zone itself), then it is
usually called a "stealth secondary" or "stealth slave".

If a master doesn't appear in the NS records, then I guess you could call it
a "stealth master", but that term is not nearly as prevalent.
