Even if you build your own secondary, I'd strongly recommend you keep 
godaddy as additional secondaries.

If you are running with only two nameservers they should be on two 
completely different Internet backbones, and preferably in two different 
continents, otherwise your DNS will not be reliable.  Read RFC2182 for a 
full explanation.

Godaddy run much bigger and better nameservers than you can.  So the 
ideal setup is you have at least one of your own, plus all of Godaddy's, 
listed in the NS records.

Then Godaddy will take much of the normal load, but in the event that 
all Godaddy's service goes down at once (possible due to a DoS attack), 
then you will still be serving your domain from your own nameserver.
