Random question about DNS

I'm sure somebody knows :)
I'm moving the 200+ domains I host to a new server. I could move the
IP addresses of my current box to the new box - but that would
involve all sorts of fraught interactions with the hosting company so
I'd like to avoid it if possible.
All of the domains currently have ns1.hexten.net and ns2.hexten.net
as their nameservers. I can change the DNS for ns1 and ns2 to point
at my new box but it's my understanding that that won't have the
desired effect because the glue records for those nameservers contain
hard wired IP addresses.
Is that right? Does anyone know how if there's a way to change the IP
addresses of the nameservers without contacting loads of people -
many of whom are not particularly technical - and asking them to
nominate new nameservers for their domain(s)?
