Maybe. The web server load will be balanced only if the DNS servers are
equal between the two nameservers.

A master server is one where you edit the zone file directory; its
named.conf file contains "type master" in the zone definition. A slave
server is one that gets the domain's contents by performing a zone transfer
from another server (usually the master); its named.conf file contains
"type slave" in the zone definition.
