Updates go to the host in the SOA record, you have proulx.com
here, which has an A record pointing to the server called

If you change the SOA record so the primary DNS is listed as say
"localhost.", the updates will be sent elsewhere.

If you don't use dynamic DNS this change should not impact
anything else, you certainly don't have to touch the NS records
to implement this change.
