redundant solution for server
Since DNS is updating every 5 minutes we can easly have mirror server. I have few questions here when we assign 2 nameservers, if we assign each one of them to different server and one of the server is down. How this going to work?. Is is going to work as round robin?.

As far as I'm aware, the name servers registered with your registrar are selected at random for users. So yes, it would be like a round robin.

It would be more advisable using 4 Nameservers NS1 and NS2 pointing at one at NS3 and NS4 pointing at the other.
This is called DixiDNS and is the most simple method of load balancing beacause you have to remember that even if your server is NOT down it will still go to the other server meaning you need the data on both servers or the servers rsynced etc.Seeksadmin - For all your administration and security needs.

i would also suggest to use DixiDNS for it.
