Just need some information on creating a Virtual DNS server, can someone
eg; I have a domain call x.com and it's currently registed at dns.y.com and
nic.y.com. Now I want to create a virtual name server (ns1.x.com and ns2.x.com) aliasing to dns.y.com and
nic.y.com. So I can register x.com to ns1.x.com and ns2.x.com.
What I need to do to setup the DNS record for x.com.db ? Is there any other files that need to be change?

So let's go for clarification first.
You own the domain x.com and right now the domain record says that the name server "Authority" for that domain is dns.y.com and nic.y.com. Correct so far?
Then you want to set up your own name servers and call them ns1.x.com and ns2.x.com and make them the "Authority" for your domain. Still correct?
Now what really thows me is the mention of x.com.db - not sure what you mean can you explain?
Or do you mean that you want to set up a caching name server only and continue to let your ISP (??) be the Authority for your domain?
Setting up a caching name server is pretty trivial compared to setting up full blown DNS, if you are on Unix or Linux undoubtedly you will use "named" (BIND) to set up either a caching name server or a full name server(s).
