I'll first duplicate the main domain here (domain.com) on Server B (126.96.36.199).
Then I'll create the subdomain (abc.domain.com) on Server B (188.8.131.52)
But for the sub domain to get worked, you have to configure the DNS for abc.domain.com on Server A(184.108.40.206) That is you should include the entry
abc.domain.com IN A 220.127.116.11
in the zone file for domain.com.
I told this by considering you are on a linux machine.

Normally subdomains would be having a CNAME record pointing to its main domain. All you have to do is replace this with an A record pointing to the second server IP address.
This would have to be added under the DNS records for the "domain.com" itself. You can find these DNS records at the nameservers authoritative for "domain.com".

can this be done ? If so how ? I know it can be done but i am not sure how or what the technical term for such a service would be ? and the actual steps involved in creating a redirection like this.
I take it this can only be done using a dedicated server...or can it be done within your domain registrar 's settings ?
It is not mandatory that you should be on a dedicated server. As long as you have the access to the DNS Zone file for 'domain.com' , you can make the change there. Else, you will have to contact your host.
