The company I work for has over 400 servers with more than 4000 users in over 200 locations in 20 or more domains. There are windows servers, Unix servers and some supermini computers. The dns admins configure the dns servers, and take care of them. There are a lot of problems generated by comunications between sites, replication between Windows and Unix servers, forwarders.
