Delegating nested subdomains

this is kind of a fundamental / theoretical question, but anyways - is it
legal / allowed to delegate 'subdomains of an subdomain' into different
authoritative name servers, in one zone?

For example in the zone file for IN NS ns.alpha.tld. IN NS ns.gamma.tld. IN NS

In other words:

as the first NS record says that "everything under the domain can be found from name server at"  --  is it
legal to say next line that "oh, by the way, having said that, all the
records under are located elsewhere (ns.gamma.tld)". And
so on...
