This is a requirement of Verisign registry, and should be
true for all net/com registrars.

presuming you mean that there should be registered host rr
for all known servers.  otherwise, i suspect the servfails
will get even worse.
Actually, no. Verisign registry requires host records with addresses for nameservers named under com and net, and requires host records without addresses for nameservers named within other domains.

Most other registries do not follow the verisign schema of inter-relational host and domain objects; typically nameservers are stored as fields in the records for their dependant domains. In those registries no "registration of hosts" is required.
