Secondary Server

Back To Terms List

Secondary Servers which can be called slave servers perform resolution for zones for which they are authoritative. They get their data from a zone transfer from a primary server which keeps it's information up to date. As is the case with a primary server a secondary server for one zone can be a primary server for another zone.
