when I try

Using Nslookup
From your DNS server, type nslookup at a command prompt.
Type set type=all, and then press ENTER.
Type _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domainname (where domainname is the name of your domain), and then press ENTER.

I get the retort that

_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domainname : non-existent domain

DNS is my weakest area.

DNS
-Connect to computer
Key in the host name for DNS Server
- Add a forward zone
add Domain name of your domain
add NS entry
with this 2 entry you should be able to get some response from nslookup.

I get a response, however I find the dns server IS NOT responding to client requests.

I suppose your client has the DNS value key in their TCP/IP properties. Or are u using DHCP ? And are ur clients and DNS in the same Domain ?
