You could group your nameservers in a subdomain rather than putting them
in a separate zone. ns.hu maybe?

Putting the name server names directly under .hu rather than under nic.hu
will save 4 bytes regardless of the number of records, because of name

Rockall, Malin, Hebrides: South 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8 at first in
Rockall and Malin, veering west or northwest 4 or 5, then backing southwest 5
or 6 later. Rough or very rough. Occasional rain. Moderate or good,
occasionally poor.
