Thanks for mentioning that explicitly.  It is an important point which I failed to mention in my email.

Since we might have a number of customers managing their own records, I’m thinking it might be cleanest for each of them to have their own SOA/NS records.  Then look at option B in the future.

Right now, for customers using *our* name servers, I only have SOA/NS records in the domain zone (along with whatever other records they create).  Do I really need to duplicate the NS records for the domain in the foo zone?

(For delegated domains, I have the NS records in the foo zone as you recommended.)

> Do you want to also support DNSsec? This is possible with PowerDNS, you need to add DS records for the domains. If you provide an EPP service to your customers/registrars this is easy as they can provide the DS records. It would be a nice service to verify the DS records at the time they are provided to see if they match and if not return an error or warning. 

This is in the cards.  I’m sure I’ll have more questions about DNSsec soon! =)
