Local/Remote DNS Setting for a Domain

Right now we can select, among others, "Local Mail Exchanger" and "Remote Mail Exchanger".

I would like to see the same for NameServers please.

There really is no need to have local DNS records if the actual DNS is handled somewhere else.

The current design can lead to someone changing the local DNS records and wondering why they never propagate through the Internet - forgetting that the DNS is handled somewhere else - like the Registrar or an Exchange provider for example.

Having a Remote setting also would finally allow to have subdomains or mail services on different cPanel servers - even in a DNS cluster. One account would handle the DNS and the other(s) would just set their DNS to remote.
