no it is not - at least not if there is an internet connection between 
customer and dns server since you hardly get even a 3 ms ping time

on the server itself yes

frankly even in a local network you end with ;; Query time: 1 msec for a 
"dig NS" and that a nameserver can respond on localhost below that is 
completly worthless

however, since the OP even don't know if he requires a recursive 
resolver or a authoritative server any discussion is pointless unless 
the OP is completly re-written based on
