correct dns configs for my domains?

    I am trying to figure out the best DNS configuration for all my domains. I have my main domain that I have listed as the nameservers (ns1 and ns2). Then I have say 15 other domains on the server all with the same name servers.

    What I have now is (substituted domains and IP's)

    MAIN DOMAIN (the one I have regsitered for the name servers)

    ftp.maindomain.com.     CNAME     maindomain.com.
    mail.maindomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    mail.maindomain.com.     TXT     v=spf1 a mx ~all
    maindomain.com.     NS     ns1.maindomain.com.
    maindomain.com.     NS     ns2.maindomain.com.
    maindomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    maindomain.com.     MX (10)     mail.maindomain.com.
    maindomain.com.     TXT     v=spf1 a mx ~all
    ns1.maindomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    ns2.maindomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    webmail.maindomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    [url]www.maindomain.com.[/url]     CNAME     maindomain.com.

    then on all my other domains I have something similar to this (obviously customized for the actual domain)

    otherdomain.com.     NS     ns1.maindomain.com.
    otherdomain.com.     NS     ns2.maindomain.com.
    otherdomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    otherdomain.com.     MX (10)     mail.otherdomain.com.
    otherdomain.com.     TXT     v=spf1 a mx ~all
    ftp.otherdomain.com.     CNAME     otherdomain.com.
    mail.otherdomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    mail.otherdomain.com.     TXT     v=spf1 a mx ~all
    webmail.otherdomain.com.     A     xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
    [url]www.otherdomain.com.[/url]     CNAME     otherdomain.com.
    Is that correct or are there some settings that I have that I don't need or settings that I need that I don't have? Thanks for the help
