How to minimize the downtime in my case

Hey Folks,

I right now have NS server hosted with ISP and I am planning to set up my
own BIND servers. Now I would like to understand that I need to ask my
Registrar to populate the entry of my new NS server which would take 4-6
hours to propagate over the internet.

To reduce the downtime, can I not add those two new NS servers along with
my old DNS server with exact zone? once all the NS entries populate over
the internet I can have my ISP's DNS removed and have one of my DNS server
as Master?

Current Scenario

I am thnking of below scenario

Then after few days

Which eventually should have all the records.

Please advise!!
