It’s important to remember that making these changes only affects future domains setups. Pre-existing domains will retain the nameservers they were given when they were created.

To modify existing domains, use the DNS Zone Manager in WHM to open the DNS Zone for that domain and modify the SOA & NS records to reflect the new nameservers.  Mismatched SOA & NS records may cause DNS resolution errors.
