Managing SOA Records and Zone Parameters

The first resource record in any Domain Name System (DNS) Zone file should be a Start of Authority (SOA) resource record. The SOA resource record indicates that this DNS name server is the best source of information for the data within this DNS site. The zone status is the status of DNS service for the specified zone. If you do not specify the zone, the status of the local DNS server is returned.
