The DNS server is now booting from the registry or directory. The existing server boot file will no longer be read by the DNS server at startup. For any new zones that you add or for changes you make to zone information, you must make them using the DNS console.
The previous DNS server boot file has been moved to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dns\backup directory.
To return to using a boot file, use the DNS console and reconfigure the boot method for the server. For more information, see "To change the boot method used by the DNS server" in the online Help.

Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Server-Service

The DNS server has written a new version of the boot file. Either new zones or changes to existing zone information were made through the DNS console that required the DNS server to update the information in this file. A copy of the previous boot file has been moved to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dns\backup directory.
