There are two general steps that you need to follow:

1.- Create an A record in your Zone File for the subdomain pointing to the new server. e.g.

subdomain.domain.com. 3600 IN A

2.- Configure the webserver in your new server so that it can serve that subdomain. This depends on the webserver running on your other machine (Apache, Nginx, lighthttp, etc)
a zone fila complete?

$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA subdomain.domain.com..com. root.mydomain.com. (
2013042201 ;Serial
3600 ;Refresh
1800 ;Retry
604800 ;Expire
86400 ;Minimum TTL
; Specify our two nameservers
IN NS ns1.subdomain.domain.com.
IN NS ns2.subdomain.domain.com.
; Resolve nameserver hostnames to IP, replace with your two droplet IP addresses.
ns1 IN A
ns2 IN A

; Define hostname -> IP pairs which you wish to resolve
@ IN A
www IN A
