> It isn't really unless you've got a couple of machines on separate,
reliable connections that you can make authoritative for the domain, and
it's better to let ISPs do that. What you can do though, is have an hidden
primary master as described here:

You can manage that yourself and let upstream servers be authoritative,
which gives you control over the domain without the responsibility of
serving it. Not all domain companies will support it though. That book and
its companion DNS and Bind will tell you more than you ever needed to know.
