is used as the "Domain Name" item (Top item of SOA record).(This is
only used at the zone file name.
(2) The "Primary Name Server" item (which is jest after "SOA")is
always "localhost" .
(1) "Domain name" (or "IP Address" for Reverse Master Zone), which is
specified at the step 6, should be used as the "Domain Name" (Top
item of SOA record).

should be used as the "Primary Name Server" item (which is just
after "SOA" in SOA record).
