Not exactly.

You did not translate the first file you posted. The first file said
(with absolute domain names):             IN NS             IN NS             IN NS

Translated in relative, it should have been:

@             IN NS      ns
              IN NS      ns0
              IN NS

> www                              IN CNAME   @

Bad idea, because www would inherit all the records of

Forbidden, you cannot have a CNAME going to a CNAME.
