I think it depends on how you difine a "nameserver".  If you what to have 
the same name server referred to by different names like this:

where all three domain names have the same IP, this is quite straight 

However, if you what one instance of an operating system to laod and run 
two seperate copies of name server software and have both of them use the 
same IP address, well, that is practically impossible.  From and IP Stack 
perspective, it is very difficult to have 2 processes bind to the same IP 

Which are you attempting to accomplish?
