This article talks about moving DNS

If you are trying to move an Active Directory integrated zone, just DCpromo the new server into the new domain and DNS will replicate automatically.

Otherwise you have to configure the old DNS to allow zone transfers to the new server.  Setup a standard secondary zone on the new server and transfer from master.  Once the transfer is complete change the zone type to Standard Primary.
