Yes, that is perfectly normal. For example,

$ dig +noall +answer ns dotat.at
dotat.at.               3559    IN      NS      ns1.gratisdns.dk.
dotat.at.               3559    IN      NS      ns3.gratisdns.dk.
dotat.at.               3559    IN      NS      grey.dotat.at.
dotat.at.               3559    IN      NS      puck.nether.net.

$ dig +noall +answer ns ac.uk
ac.uk.                  20993   IN      NS      ns0.ja.net.
ac.uk.                  20993   IN      NS      ns1.surfnet.nl.
