Hi, Schilling -
NS records need to be updated in both the parent and authoritative
zones. The edu. parent is operated by Educause (and Verisign). The
cps.edu hostmaster can request the nameserver addition here:
It is best practice for both listings of nameservers to match. In
addition to adding ns2.cps.k12.il.us. you'll likely wish to add
