A DNS zone delegation is the delegation of the authority over a portion of a DNS namespace to a set of different nameservers. DNS requests made to the delegated zone are serviced by the Authoritative DNS Server to which the zone is delegated.

There are three scenarios for zone delegation:

  • BloxOne DDI manages both the parent and child zones:

  • BloxOne DDI manages the parent zone and an external name server manages the delegated zone:

  • An external server manages the parent zone, and the on-prem host manages the child zone:
