An authoritative server holds the DNS records and for a given domain and a recursor (aka caching) server requests these on behalf of a client host. Have you ever registered a domain name? You were likely asked to specify the authoritative servers during the process.

I second what Jan-Piet said. At this point the both of you are asking questions which fall within basic networking. In general the questions are OK, but they are not where this mailing list is at. If this subject interests you, you should strongly consider getting a job working in a team with others who can mentor you.

The days of being able to "fake it till you make it" are long gone. In the 1990's there was more of a hacker culture on the internet but these days clients and employers expect competency. This does not mean we all have to know everything (none of us do) but having the fundamentals in place is a prerequisite.
