In the supermasters table you should set-up a record for the primary 
nameserver as you would set-up on second-level domains.
If you have a primary named ns1.yourdomain.com you should create an 
entry like the following example in the supermasters table:
ip                                    nameserver account
<ip of hidden master>    ns1.yourdomain.com    internal or whatever you 
use in your tables

This set-up should create a new domain when the hidden master sends a 
notify to its slaves.

Good luck.
