In terms of PBA-S "DNS Hosting" means service to keep domain DNS zone by PBA-S name servers. In this case domain is shown in Domain Manager (Top > Service Director > Domain Manager > Domains) and has service "DNS Hosting" enabled:

Domains DNS zones exist at the PBA-S-managed name servers NS1.PBAS.TLD and NS2.PBAS.TLD. For example:

[root@ns1 ~]# grep directory /etc/named.conf
        directory       "/var/named";
[root@ns1 ~]# ls -l /var/named/*.zone
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 526 Oct 16 06:01 /var/named/
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 526 Oct 16 06:33 /var/named/
-rw-r--r-- 1 named named 526 Oct 16 06:29 /var/named/
