With the rest of the IN A records for exampleA.com (and correspondingly
for exampleB.com).  You need *addresses* for your name servers as well
as for your web servers.  And you might also want to have www.<mumble>
address records as well.  And if these site are sending E-Mail, MX
records would be *polite*.  MTAs often toss E-Mail from addresses
lacking MX records...  And if you have a MX record pointing to
mail.exampleA.com and/or mail.exampleB.com, you will need IN A records
for the mail. hosts as well.  Or you can use CNAME records.
