it'll answer authoritatively if it loads the data from a zone file (master
or slave).  it will not check to see if the zone has been delegated to it,
nor whether it is one of the NS RRs in the apex of the zone it loads up.

but note that clients who receive nonauthoritative answers from you will not
care, so, if you weren't answering authoritatively, it would not matter.
