If you use file-based primary or secondary zones, configure each primary server for a zone to allow zone transfers to each secondary server for a zone. Next, configure each secondary server for a zone with a list of primary servers for that zone.
If you use Active Directory replication in a Windows Server 2003 domain, configure the zone replication scope as described in Table 3.8.
If the DNS server is a domain controller, you can change the zone type to Active Directory–integrated. However, if the DNS server is not a domain controller, this option is not available. Active Directory–integrated zone data is stored and replicated as part of the Active Directory database.
For more information about DNS zone storage and replication in Active Directory, enlisting a DNS server in a DNS application directory partition, removing a DNS server from a DNS application directory partition, or changing zone replication scope, click the Index button in Help and Support for Windows Server 2003, and then in the keyword box, type DNS zones.
