Transfer domain management without downtime

We have all of our domain registered and hosted on GoDaddy except one which was a website that was initially started on Wix and the domain was registered and hosted there. The website is no longer hosted through Wix but our domain is still registered and hosted on the Wix server which has become a burden over time.

 

I want to transfer this domain to GoDaddy but this domain is very crucial for us and we absolutely cannot have any downtime on any services that it points to. Looking for solutions I came across another community post that suggest to simply transfer the DNS Hosting portion without the registration part. Create a new DNS Hosting for that domain on the GoDaddy side, setup this DNS Hosting with all the appropriate records which would basically be a copy of all the records we already have. Once this is done simply switch the nameserver configuration on the Wix side to point to the GoDaddy name servers. 

 

This seem a good solution to me as I have no problem leaving the registration on the Wix side as long as the DNS management is back on GoDaddy with all our other domains. My question is, can you confirm that if I do follow this sequence of action, there will be no downtime of any of the services, as when the TTL expires for the nameserver entry and it is refresh now pointing to the GoDaddy nameserver GoDaddy will right away be able to handle all the DNS request?

 

Thank you!

That all sounds correct - as you are mirroring the DNS there should be no downtime as both DNS server will be providing the same information.
