No you cannot, in order to have a public name server registered at the
parent servers for the TLD, it must have a second level domain name.

You would have to ask ICANN that question, your name server must be listed
at the TLD servers in order to host public domains.

Let me try.

If you host www.whatever.net. Say one of my clients want to go to that site.
The client will ask my DNS server for www.whatever.net. My DNS server will
"truthfully" say, I don't know, but let me see if I know the name server
responsible for whatever.net. Of course, my DNS server does not know that
yet, so it will say "no problem, I'll just go ask the name server for the
"net" domain. So, my DNS server will walk up to the "net" name servers (the
TLDs, the Roots servers) and say:
Excuse me guys, but I am looking for the nameserver for the zone called
"whatever"

Now the question is what do you think would happen IF the TLD servers don't
ahve a name for you? They would just laugh at my DNS server. Then my DNS
server would get mad and go smack my client and the client would get upset
and do a BSOD and my support calls would go through the roof. All because of
you :) 

Ahem..... I got a little carried away there....but you get the picture. You
are required to publish a Name/IP pair with the Root Servers so that we all
can find your server and ask it for the records that it says it is
responsible for. It just keeps things orderly and proper, see?

From your response, you are hosting a public zone. As Kevin mentioned, you
need to register that zone with the registrar and register your DNS server
as a hostnameserver with the registrar. Otherwise, its a private domain and
you would need to tell your specific users to specifically use YOUR DNS to
resolve this domain.

Ace, what you mean is if i don't register to the TLDs registrar it
won;t become a public name server but my internal or specific(remote)
user will be able to use it as forwarder if they know my dns ip
address, right ?
