Default DNS question

I have up to 6 ip addresses available on my root server. Is it possible to have one of these ips configured as my slave dns on the same box as the primary? If so, is there a guide I can follow anywhere?

No, this doesn't work because you can have just one DNS server installed on your system, and in that one DNS server you can't specify one and the same zone as master and slave.
Even if it was possible, I don't see the point. If your server crahses, both the master and slave are gone. But the purpose of a slave server is to have a fallback if the primary isn't available.

I doubt that (although I don't know Plesk). Maybe the interface tells you this, but did you check what happens behind the scenes?

This is a master only, but not master and slave at the same time.
