I'm no expert on the IDNIC - but the concept of a primary server
is usually hidden to people outside the management of your
domain (Except for dynamic update, which muost people don't do,
and even then it trusts the SOA). So I doubt IDNIC need to know
this kind of detail.

So why do you think you need to swap these around?

The nameservers for the subdomains jkt, slo, crb, appear to be
paired (good), but on the same physical networks (bad). So if
one of these cities is unreachable you may get the wrong sort of
errors returned, consider adding another secondary for these
zones on an "out of city" nameserver.
