[Pdns-users] Authority Question

The idea was to have domain.com delegated to 184.108.40.206. I know I can
delegate a subdomain to another server, but I wanted to delegate the
whole domain I am authoritive for to a third part. I actually
accomplished this by adding an SOA for .com and then said domain.com NS
220.127.116.11 which works.

You delegate a subdomain.
the record looks like:
domain.com NS 18.104.22.168
sub.domain.com NS 22.214.171.124
www.domain.com A 126.96.36.199
www.sub.domain.com (you don't care, you delegated it to 188.8.131.52
