NT Domain Entry in Windows 2000 DNS

I'd like to create an entry in Windows 2000 DNS that would point to a NT4 domain name.  Is ther a way to accomplish this?  Any help much appreciated.

Install DNS on your NY4 Domain and then have Windows 2000 use it as a secondary zone.

That's what I did, but I think I'm missing something.  When I try to ping my NT4 domain by its name (dom1), it doens't resolve.  I tried it as DOM1.COM and I can ping the domain.

If you want to ping by NetBIOS name  (in this case dom1) you need to use WINS or LMHOSTS.

WINS is a good idea, but that doesn't solve adding a DNS entry now does it? What about creating two one way trusts between both domains? Also, you might have to manually add an SRV record for the NT4 PDC.

Exacttly.  That's the point at which I am.  The SRV record is what I seem to miss.  The only this I don't know about is what I should type as parameters for the SRV record.  Could you elaborate please?  Basically, what do I enter as service and protocol when creating the SRV record?  Also, do I enter this SRV record under a secondary zone for the NT4 domain on my Win2k DNS?  I think that should resolve my issue definitely.
