How do Addon Domains work in CPanel?

Okay, so I have my website at 8wayrun.com... the domain has nameservers as the following:

ns1.8wayrun.com
ns2.8wayrun.com

Now I have another domain, lets call it DomainTwo.com. In CPanel, I created an addon domain for DomainTwo.com going to public_html/domaintwo. So this new website is accessable from two different places: domaintwo.com and domaintwo.8wayrun.com.

I can access it from domaintwo.8wayrun.com, but so far I seem to be unable to get domaintwo.com working correctly. I assumed all I would need to do is to change the nameservers for the second domain to ns1.8wayrun.com and ns2.8wayrun.com... but its not working.

What am I missing?

ahhh ok I just reread the post and think i may have been thinking of a different task as well....lemme try and replicate what you are trying to do...

Summing up what I am trying (correct me where I am wrong)

I will use xenxero.com and try to create RANDOMDOMAIN.xenxero.com to be accessible from RANDOMDOMAIN.COM

Sound like it is what you want to do?

Works for me when I do it this way....but it takes time for the DNS changes to propagate, sometimes up to 24 hours or so.
