I guess you mean point at your ip for the primary nameserver for example.com
Surely this is a really bad idea since you can't count on your ip address
staying the same.
I notice mine changes frequently with IOL BB. some time while I am actually
active on the line.
You might be better to just aim to host just "www" at example.com and thus
not host the DNS for the entire domain .....or am I wrong ??
I've been messing about with creating a subdomain and pointing that at my BB
router - as in "me_at_home.example.com" however even this is unreliable
(because of changing IP address. (but if you use some sticky tape a dynamic
dns entry and a CNAME entry it seems to work).
Which reminds me - do DNS CNAMES have a time to live or does it inherit the
ttl of the name it's pointing too (looks like the latter to me).
