    Use only ns2 for a test domain and see if it resolves.

    This may sound silly, but shutdown or disconnect NS1 briefly, and then test domain resolution (DNS) from another computer that hasn't recently cached the domain. If you get a DNS response, it must have come from NS2. I assume that NS1 and NS2 are not running on the same DNS server.

    Note: I also assume that the DNS lookup wasn't cached upstream, either. Perhaps using a cellphone to check (via a separate network such as the cell network instead of wifi) would be a good way to test.

    Got a windows machine anywhere? You can tell nslookup which DNS server to use:
