Well, you don't have to be much of a PAR to find a problem with this:

$ host -r -Z -t ns yahoo.akadns.net  za.akadns.net
yahoo.akadns.net.       90000   IN      NS      ze.akadns.net.
yahoo.akadns.net.       90000   IN      NS      zk.akadns.net.
 !!! yahoo.akadns.net NS host zk.akadns.net does not exist
yahoo.akadns.net.       90000   IN      NS      zh.akadns.net.
yahoo.akadns.net.       90000   IN      NS      zj.akadns.net.
 !!! yahoo.akadns.net NS host zj.akadns.net does not exist
yahoo.akadns.net.       90000   IN      NS      zb.akadns.net.
