I highly suggest looking into http://everydns.net for DNS hosting. Same

I sent a one time donation to EveryDNS, something small (don't recall
off the top of my head) and since then have been allowed to host all of
my zones there without any limits.
Make sure your nameservers are on different networks from one another.
Sounds self-evident when you read it but a number of otherwise smart
folks have been bitten by that before.
