If you have a windows server doing DNS, you are probaly doing a AD intergrated zone. I dont think BIND can do that, it would be fine to have BIND be a secondary zone but not a Ad intergrated zone.

I would not do this

When you say "help", are you implying that you would have both Windows AND Linux DNS?  If so, I'm not sure that's a good idea.

If you're new to DNS or Linux then I'd go straight to the Windows solution.  Configuring the zones for AD in Linux requires a little skill.  If, on the other hand, your Linux and DNS skills are up to it then it can be done.  

Here is a good troubleshooting page:
